I had NOT seen them for 5 years and for all I know they either barely remembered me or still harbored animosity towards me.
But that does not matter really, all I know is I was mad at them for a long time for what I chose to see as the small role they played in the great betrayal of my life.
My feeling this way still after all this time was petty in the extreme and I realized it the moment I heard of their death.
It was only then that I realized how much I missed knowing them. My god, what a truly beautiful, special and unique person she was!
Ok, well, I am going to spend some time now on thinking about them and writing down a memory of them...
