I will never forget my introduction to AOL chat rooms. Somehow I ended up in a Christian Seniors chat room, back in 1998; and I made friends I will never forget. Many of them have passed away now, and it makes me sad to think about that; I guess when you are associated with "seniors", you can expect a lot of goodbyes.
I met many of those folks face-to-face. Most of them were as real in person as they were online.
There are some I haven't kept in touch with, but I still feel a very close connection with them: Helen, Sue, Brenda, Kathy, Tex. I haven't heard from Jen in months. I have only good feelings toward all of them, and I hope they're doing well. Jerry, didn't we have fun fussing at one another? Meanwhile, there are the ones I have kept in touch with: Lona, Joanna (I got your Christmas card today), Nance, and all the rest.
Merry Christmas to all my old AOL buddies. Isn't this World Wide Web a wonderful thing?
