I had a surreal experience this morning. I have been playing an IPhone (Matching with Friends) game against someone for a little less than a year, about 2 games a day. He stopped playing me a month or so ago. Today he stared a new game against me and sent a message in game. The message was from his wife telling me that he passed away Easter morning and that he loved playing this game with me. It strikes me as unusual that a man that I only exchanged passing pleasantries in text i.e. Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, looked forward to playing a game with me. I never thought that I could touch someone life that I have never meet or talked too. I will value my on-line friendships more from today on.
