The reason I am asking is because Donnie and I disagree about the answer. I'm curious what YOU think and will explain the situation after I've heard from some of you.
2nd - If you saw somebody at the mall that you thought was dead, would you stop them to tell them?
I actually did this today. Let me explain.
A few years back when I was helping plan our 10 year class reunion, I was talking with a fellow classmate about the LARGE number of people we had lost to death over the years. This guy I was speaking with asked me, "Have you heard anything about KH?"
I had not so I asked him what happened. He told me he didn't know but that he thinks he heard on the news that she had died.
Well, even though I didn't spread this news because he wasn't sure and because I hadn't heard anything else about it, I still kinda thought...."Crap, that's ANOTHER friend who has died!"
Well, like I said, I saw this girl at the mall today and as she walked a foot away from me, walking the opposite direction, I called her name.
I hugged her and laughed and said, "My goodness! I hate to say this but...I actually heard from someone that you might possibly be dead and I am just so happy to see that you're not!"
She smiled and amazingly, had a story behind the reason I thought she had died.
Turns out that her fiancee' was killed in an auto accident about 6 years ago. KH was "sort of" missing during that time, too (mostly a misunderstanding) and her mother reported it to the news and they posted pictures of her and even used the words "feared dead."
Thankfully, that news story was cleared up almost instantly as communications became clearer. It was mainly just a worried Mom desperately wanting to talk with her daughter after hearing of the fiancee's tragic situation.
So, I'm just wondering, would the rest of you have stopped to talk with her about it all?
(And yes, for those of you that went to school with me and are curious about who KH is, email me privately and I'll share her name.)
