      There are always people leaving our lives so this is handy. I like No.15 in the last list. Yesterday, I had friends from grade school who came to visit and we all connected on social media. We sure can't leave each other now.

      Don't be a stranger, let's keep in touch on Facebook.

      Actually, FB has been a boon for me to stay connected with former co-workers and even some friends from high school.
