Yes, for the most part, I do.
My first DM was AK. I don't ever see him, but we recently reconnected on Facebook.
A couple of my former players are still my friends. We play Warhammer 40k together from time to time.
NC and I are currently playing in a Forgotten Realms campaign together.
When I run my next campaign, I hope that even more of my "old friends" will participate.
