1HappyFool --

Thank you for posting your story. It triggered two reactions in me.
First, before I even hit the rec button, I sent a note to my best friend, to whom I have not spoken or written for over a year. Whatever reason I had for delaying (procrastination and intertia) are simply not reason enough to keep me out of touch with family and friends.

Second, it reminded me of the loss of a dear friend when I was 29 years old. We had been out of touch for only about 2 years when he died, but I had many of the same feelings. I was able to give his eulogy on behalf of the circle of friends we both belonged to, though it was very painful. I don't want to presume anything about how you will feel in 12 years, but to relate my experience from that position, I now have mostly only the good memories of Allen, though his memory is framed in sadness.

Wishing you peace,
