nope not in person. When my mom was having surgery, he tried to tell me his email, I dont have email. then I suggested texting, and we have. we r great friends and I hope to be able yto meet him one day. I also hope that he's ok after he comes back. Hes been my biggest support through all of this crap ive been going through. hes there for me at 2am when I just need to talk (well text).
