About a week ago I was surprised to be contacted on FaceBook from a Jr. High School friend of Andrew's.
I was so touched my her post and yes, I did my share of crying. He has been gone for over 4 years and she just found out. She shared with me that she has been looking for him since about 1995 or so only too find him too late.
She was a very good friend to Andrew.
In her correspondence she thanked me for being nice to her. That made me weep even harder.
It made me stop and think about the people who pass through our lives. We never know what kind of impression we are making on the person and maybe on their lives. The gravity of that weighs on me.
I hope I always treated you well Patty and if there were times I didn't please forgive me.
And you have made a mark in my life, that I need to always be kind. And maybe for the first time in my life I think I want forgiveness for times when I wasn't nice to someone. I realize now any justification I might have ever thought I had is inexcusable. Thank you Patty -
