Friends or Acquaintances

I think back to the jobs I have had since I was sixteen and for each job, accept maybe one, I can tell you that I have gotten close to people with whom I have had the pleasure to work with. So close that I would never imagine not being in contact with them for the rest of my life. The sad thing is, I can’t tell you where those people are today.

The job I have now is the longest job I have had so naturally it is the place where I have grown closest to the most people. 
Today, two of those people are no longer going to be working with me and I’m worried. Worried that the friendship will dwindle and will become something that existed only among the walls of our employment.
The three of us have expressed that the friendship will go on and that we were never simply acquaintances.
