Meeting a friend I lost over 30 years ago

I left school at 16 when one of my closest friends parents decided to up and leave and move to America, I was gutted, there was big goodbyes, one minute she was there the next she was gone.

I started looking for her when friends reunited came out with no luck, I then searched for her on Facebook still no luck. Every month I would make a search to see if I had any luck and every month nothing, Then one day there was a message in my Inbox from a lady who was looking for me.

We transferred photos and got talking again, she then phoned me, we had a really long chat. It was amazing to hear her voice even though I didn't recognise it as she had a fully blown American accent.

Her and her brother are planning to come over next Summer, they wanted to come this Summer but both of them have just become grandparents. I am really jealous as I would live a grandchild. Hopefully by the time she comes over I might be more lucky.

Can't wait to see her and her brother again. 30 Years is a long time , its going to be a scary meeting.

It's always sad to be away from an old friend. But reunions are wonderful. I'm glad you located each other.
