Yes and yes. If someone very close to you had died (spouse,child) it takes a long while to get over it (and often you never really get OVER it) and it can feel like everyone else has forgotten about it and gotten on with their lives. It feels great when someone months or even years later remembers your loves ones and lets you know they were think about them and you.
