Letter To A Lost Friend

From 30 Days

To Carla Keith,

Of all the folks that were lost in the river of my life, I would like to find out where you landed the most.

I have found most of the rest, scattered by time and tide all over the globe. But I don’t know what happened to you.

That is a shame, since you were the first 'woman' I ever knew. You taught me more standing at the school bus stop every morning than any other girl before you. You were mature, and I was fascinated.

I don’t know if I would call it first love, but it certainly was the beginning where I realized there was a lot more to women that I had realized.

The last time I saw you was 1975. I fellow classmate recently e-mailed me a picture of you. It was the first time I had seen you in 35 years. It really made me wonder where you ended up.

Hope all is well and you survived like the rest of us.

So if you ever google you name on the Internet, hopefully might find this. From way back in the day, in South Dakota, near Rapid City, on Ellsworth Air Force Base. It seems like such a long time.




  1. <3 I hope CARLA KEITH googles her name.

  2. I miss my high school sweetheart and can't find him anywhere, either. Good luck.

  3. so the real question is,

    was she hot in the recent picture?

  4. She was a lot hotter than I recall.....but then again, memories fade quite a bit over 35 years.

  5. {I'm giggling at Slyde's comment}

    Ahh, first love. You never forget, do you?
