Reading how you have lost loved ones from the past makes me think I am not alone in the way I am feeling and I don't know the answerer. I hope it is ok to post here, I am new to this. I only found out this past month that someone whom I knew 41 years ago passed away 6 years ago this past may. He had made a big impact in my life back then. I moved away and I lost contact with him but I have thought of him many times in the past 41 years. I decided to do an internet search on him and his obituary came up. I find myself thinking about him everyday and then I am in tears. I wish he knew how much he has meant to me over the last 41 years, I have been wondering if I should send a Sympathy Card with a note telling his son what impact his father had on my life. Or is would that be inappropriate?
