It would have been a good 40 plus years since I had been there, but she still had a hold on me.
So did you ever try to contact her?

Many years later, probably about 20 years. I actually got the phone number of her parents and stressed for days over whether to call or not and perhaps getting her number.. In the end I decided not to. No doubt she would be married and of course so was I. I didn't see the benefit to her of me reinserting myself in her life after so much time. Not to mention it would potentially cause me to dwell on the impossible. Yet I still think of her and remember every detail of our time together. Such is life. If I could turn back time.

Maybe for the best. You will always have the sweet special memories

(although a little Facebook stalking might help)

I would not know how to find her on FB. No clue as to her married name. Not to mention, she would be at least 76 now, so quite likely not an active FB user, although I am, so who knows.
