recently i had a shocking news of one of my old friend's death. I had not met him for years . we were so close during our younger days. I cried in silence of my folly in not keeping touch with him . I can never repair the damage!

But v do make it a point that v call each other once a week and meet and freak out once a month..the strategy is very simple.. each of our b'day falls in diff. months.. so in each month v have atleast1 b'day.. so on that day v all meet and freak out.. v do msg each other every day.. like a simple good morning atleast..Its very important to have contact wid our friends.. happy mylotting !

I am very sorry for your loss and your regret. it can be hard to sit and regret when a person has past. Because we are not able to make that time up that we regret loosing. But if it helps, I believe that person knows after they have past. Do I keep in touch with school friends? I have one that I have talked to now and again. We don't talk every day...it is more of an email here and there. And I have heard from friends online from time to time. But we have all moved on in different areas of our lives. It is more of a check in with the person to see where they are at and how they are doing. Other than that, no, I do not really talk everyday with past school friends.

i think in this fast moving world we are not spending time for our friends as we should be also in old times it was difficult to contact opld friends who were far due to lack of communication tools but now with the advance of the communication tools we are not in touch with friends as we should be ..hope people stay in touch with eachother seeing this thread..

First of all sorry for your lost, I would feel the same to find out somebody that was close to me at one point in time has passed away. Eventhough It's kind a hard to do as I don't livin my home country anymore. I still keep in touch with my best friend from high school through email and text. I also try to meet everytime I go home to my home town. It's hard sometimes as I only go home once a year for max one month but we always try to at least meet once...xx

I keep in touch with a handful and it is hard work. Some are better at it then others, and it is easiest to stay in touch with people with email. I live a long way away from my 'old' friends, and those who I have to stay in contact with by phone and regular mail don't hear from me that often. At best, I manage a Christmas card.
