I was trying to re-connect again . . . instead I found his obituary. I am both stunned, and saddened by his passing. He was one year my junior. We dated before, during, and after his service in the military. We re-connected when I lived in Arizona a few years back and saw each other a time or two. We had talked about getting together for a movie, out for coffee, etc. Our schedules never worked out, and now I know why I couldn't find him again . . . finding out about his passing, by happenstance, breaks my heart. I still have our memories, from the past.
