Thought of the Day - Reconnections
When I was a kid my parents were friends with a couple (Kenny and Alma) who came to be like another set of grandparents to me. I spent a great deal of time with them growing up, going on trips, spending weekends with them. These two had a wide variety of interests and hobbies and I was exposed to many things by them over the years.
Unfortunately, Alma died when I was about 13. I went on a long trip back east with Kenny afterwards to see his old stomping grounds. Shortly after that, Kenny drifted out of my life.
I haven't seen him for many years now. Finally, during my last trip to Colorado a few weeks ago I managed to reconnect with him. He's 88 now. A bit harder of hearing but still sharp as a tack. I had a great visit with him that lasted the better part of the day. I got to meet his 'new' wife for the first time and we all got to share stories and swap memories. What a great experience.
