Looking for old friends, i have found records of four. One is my ex-fiance who is alive and well.  Another was my previous girl friend who died in her early twenties (tuberculosis and spousal abuse?)  My best buddy our junior year died in 2013, and my closest friend throughout my teens died in 1999.  He, like my girl friend, was Thlinkit so living to age 69 was an achievement.  To think of them is to miss them and to sorrow over the treatment this  country and its citizens have dealt out to the land's original human inhabitants.  I wish i had kept in touch.

Yes, I understand. My condolences.

A friend of mine died yesterday - quickly - a stroke - aneurysm - stroke. No suffering.

I see again how important it is to honor each day and stay in gentle touch.

Today is the day, not tomorrow.

All that is entirely true.

And yet what gifts memory and mourning are-- how horrible if people were jsut dirt over the transom to one.

And also, what a gift to continue to make friends.

But please believe that I'm not wanting to Cheer You Up. If possible.

It's normal to have regrets of that sort (wishing you had kept in touch)...I know how you feel. A lot of that has crept into my own life already. It is good to remember those we have loved so do a lot of good remembering.

Ouch. I would imagine that hurts a bit to find out these things about these people.

Thank you. Autism, however unwelcome, is a shield against such pain. So is time and the awareness that death is part of life. With age comes an acceptance of pain and the realization that "pain is necessary, suffering is optional."
