I just received an e-mail message from an old and very dear friend with whom I'd lost touch for nearly 40 years. She came across my sister's name on classmates.com (they went to the same high school) and got my e-mail address from her.
I'd been trying unsuccessfully to find her on the 'net for years, and hearing from her today was one of the best birthday presents I've had in a very long time. :)
