Lists and Stages of Life

You may probably have a lot of friends and you have connected with them via Facebook. There are different stages of life. Some friends are close enough that they stay together with us a long period of life, but most people and friends comes in and moves out of our life time to time in these different stages of life. They go somewhere else for a different work, for a different reason and we do the same, and thus the contact with our old friends, partners breaks.
