Long Lost Friend Rita FOUND!

Yay—we found RITA after 30 years!
In this regard, social media can be a great help for finding long lost friends.
Just like with our previous lost person from our Life in Italy...
Read below post.
Rita Ruzwan...
It was her husband who first found my post on FB Page and he reacted.
What a joy to find such a comment...!
Rita sure has not aged since we met in 1991.


Indeed, FRIENDS are ANGELS of LOVE!

  2. Poco a poco me pondré al corriente de las publicaciones en los blogs.
    Mi ordenador no ha tenido arreglo y ya tengo un ordenador nuevo al que ahora me tengo que acostumbrar. He estado bastante tiempo, pensando en la elección.

  4. There are so many folks I'd like to find again, Mariette, but I'll have to get back on FB to do that.
    Blessings!

    1. Dearest Martha Jane,
      You mean FB Page as I seldom publish anything on my FB that is for worldwide viewing...
      Hugs,

    I went back and read the story!
    Wow - you were lucky it all worked out as it did.

    1. Dearest Mary,
      Yes, it was indeed wonderful to find her back!
      She was an angel back then in helping us out and we're forever grateful to her.
      The world is full of special people with a golden heart.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  6. Olá Mariette, também tive experiência a esse respeito,
    já, há algum tempo, encontrei amigos que a muito tempo
    não os via e nem sabia onde se encontravam, graças à Internet
    (sites, blogs e redes sociais).
    Um ótimo domingo para o casal.
    Um abraço.

    1. Prezado Pedro,

  8. Wat fijn Mariette om dan zo'n geliefde vriendin terug te vinden.
    Ik kreeg eens een cadeautje van een vriendin met de tekst;
    Vrienden zijn als sterren, je ziet ze niet altijd, maar je weet dat ze er altijd zijn.

    liefs,
    Hilly

    1. Beste Hilly,
      Ja, dat is zeker fijn om weer contact te hebben!
      Het geeft de mens moed om te weten dat er over de hele wereld nog steeds lieve mensen zijn die je graag willen helpen in nood! Alleen halen hun de pers en de media niet... dat gaat alleen over negatieve dingen.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  9. I found my long-lost pen pal in FB too. We corresponded when we both 15 for about 20 years and then we lost touch.
    I am so happy for you, dearest Mariette.

    1. Dearest Veronica,
      At times a sudden death or whatever can cause us to lose someone... But this is a great way for finding long–lost friends!

  11. Oh, Mariette, I'm so happy for you! I just read the post of you, her and her family and how Pieter lost and recovered his bag. Thank God she was able to help and he got his bag with the precious money intact.
    God IS Good!
    She is still beautiful and a wonderful friend, for sure.
    Lots of hugs to you and Pieter!
    :)

    1. Dearest Paula & Nuno,
      Oh, both of us are living proof of the fact that we have a Guardian Angel.
      So often we have been in a critical situation and always things worked out.
      Rita was another living angel who graciously helped us out.
      Yes, she sure is beautiful! And even more so on the inside!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    2. Friends like that are rare and precious and if one can be in contact with them, they are to be treasured. Better than family, sometimes.
      Lots of hugs!!!
      :)

  12. It's great to meet friends that we haven't seen for a long time.
