#8: High School Mystery
It’s not often that a former classmate just drops off the face of the earth. I know it happened frequently back in the day, but with social media and computerized documents, it’s hard to disappear nowadays. Hopefully, John is living his best life off the grid and not one of the unsolved murder mysteries we watch on TV every night.
I feel sad for his wife and children, though. It has to be hard never having an answer. If he just walked away, I hope he reaches out one day with an explanation. Death is hard, but never knowing is so much harder. At least with death, you have a chance to complete the grieving process. There’s always that smidgen of hope left if it just remains a mystery.
