I broke two people’s hearts yesterday. One was an ex-wife who never remarried and had a child with the decedent. The other was a daughter who hadn’t seen a parent in 25 years. They had both been looking unsuccessfully for the person who had been missing in their life; one for two years, the other for over twenty. Don’t assume that the people you’re estranged from don’t care about you.
Maybe they don’t. But maybe they do.
