It’s a strange feeling when you just find out that someone you were friendly with back in the day died years ago and you never even knew.

It’s happened to me a few times lately. I’m in my 50s, I’ve met lots of people in my life. Some friends stay and some fade out as we move jobs, relocate, have families and whatnot.
