Is it possible to be friends with someone you've never met 'in the flesh', so to speak? I think so, because I know I'd feel liked and accepted if I met any of my sibs in this forum, and that I'd feel the same way towards them. As for Paul .... I've never (yet) met him and yet I KNOW he's a friend to all of us. Anyone can sense his goodness and sincerity. Lot of love to everyone out there. Jenny.
