Alas, I hardly knew ye
It’s been almost a decade since we were all gathered together in the same room, and now we never will again. I’d lost contact with you over the years, and we weren’t really friends, not really, but you were still a part of my life, however tangential.
I wish I’d gone, but I guess that’s all too late now. All I can really do now is to pray for your future, if you believe in that sort of thing – I don’t even know if you ever did.
