Joe is pretty wise. In life we meet people and we lose people. One can't expect to have relationships with everybody that go smoothly. Divisions, for many reasons, happen. This is part of living and must be understood as such. I do agree with this. Consider how many people you have met in your life that are no longer a part of it. We can't hang on to everybody, even people that mean a lot to us. Life happens and some people drift apart.
