Dear Abby: I need help moving past the end of a longtime friendship. I don’t know what happened. My friend, my former college roommate, just drifted away.
After school we continued to be friends — not besties, but we would meet for coffee or dinner a few times a year. Fast-forward 25 years. She called me the day she left her husband, 10 years ago, to tell me the news. I was her emotional lifeline for a few days, and it was intense. We continued to be in touch a few times a year.
