I just found a friend I've been looking for for years—unfortunately, we haven't connected yet because her phone line is busy this evening. We were teenagers in boarding school together in Florida in the early 1950s. I was an MK from Africa, and she was one from Alaska—strange combination perhaps, but it never mattered to us.
It turns out she wrote me several Facebook messages in spring and summer of 2015—but I never saw them and am not sure why they are just now showing up for me. A strange situation for sure. When I finally connect with her, I'll write some more about it here.
