I just found out last night that a friend of mine died. He was someone I met online when I was in high school, and kept in touch with for years, either through e-mail, chatting online, or stuff he would send me in the mail. We lost touch about two and a half years ago, and last night I did a search to try to get back in touch. I found out he was killed in a car accident in February 2005.
What a huge blow. It’s amazing how someone you’ve never met face to face can still have a huge impact on your life.
I’ll miss you, Dick. You were a good friend.
