Are you still in touch with your child's childhood friends?

I see a couple of my sons' friend in passing, but not really in touch with them, sadly. I really enjoyed knowing some of them.

Not directly, although I like most of my son's friends.  Because my son lives 5 states away, I don't see his friends unless he's here visiting & then they are always welcome.  They stay in touch with him on Facebook & I will stay in touch with them when they comment to him or admire my grandson's photos.  And, I keep up with my son.  PS - he is the only one of his friends who is married & a parent, the only one that isn't still living at home or going to school on the parents' dime.  They are all 26 -27yrs old.

No, I do not.  Johnny moved to California 4+ years ago for college (I live in Kansas) and I moved from his childhood home so I don't see any of his friends.  I am friends with some of Jessica's childhood friends on Facebook but I don't go to Facebook too often so the answer to her is also no.

I do keep in touch with a couple of my daughter's friends from her teen years - or should I say they keep in touch with me,  dropping by to say hello when they are in the neighborhood.  My son's childhood friends I only see when son is home.  I did like their friends or at least most of them.

My son's best friend was here a lot.  They had been friends for 21 years.  Unfortunately he died suddenly a few weeks back so I won't be seeing him any more.  My youngest daughter has a friend that she has known since 2nd gade that she is still in touch with but I haven't really heard from her in a while.

I am terribly sorry. How sad.

Yes most of them are on Shannon's Face Book and every once in awhile they will email me through FB or they will give Shannon a message.
