My ex and I had a very serious relationship for several years. I was the one is what he always said. Mistakes were made...not cheating...and needless to say it ended. He has now been with someone else for a few months now. His father just died. I loved his father like he was my own. I attended the funeral and I have we had a few exchanges as far as texts and emails. He seems to be receptive to me and appreciates the support. His father's death has stirred up a lot of feelings that I have for my ex. Of course his new girlfriend has been there for him to. I'm curious to know if anyone has reconnected with an ex after something terrible has happend to them?
