Sure! If you guys agree to have dinner with us next time you are in town. :)

...are you talking about?
I don't understand what your "Sure!" is in response to...

Do I call the parents and go, "Hi..the last I knew, your daughter and T hated me, but maybe she and T are ready to reconcile, can you put them in touch with me?" Sigh.
My answer was Sure you should! Attempting to reconcile is always a good thing. And as a related note, you guys should agree to have dinner with us! :) (ie another attempt by me to reconcile, relating humorously to your attempts in this post.)

Yeah...but I think it fair to say that T and I were more than just fraternity brothers before the stuff with Scotti went to hell...
Unless you know the parents well, and think they would be aware of the situation, I would leave out the part about A and T possibly hating you -- no reason to put them in the middle if they don't need to be. You should say something more like, "Hello, Mr./Mrs. [their last name]. I'm an old friend of A and T from [however you know them], but we've lost touch over the years. I'd really like renew my friendship with them. Would you please pass my contact information on to them?"

I had a person that I thought was a very close friend in Illinois. He went through some rough stuff and cut off all contact with everyone he knew, which really hurt me, and I'm guessing himself, too.
Sometimes people just want to forget about people who remind them of bad times. I would just leave it alone.

This is true...
I guess thank goodness you and I are alike in that we prefer to focus on the good things in our mutual past...
I wouldn't exactly say THAT, but yeah, sure, get in touch with them.

Yep...I screened it, because you're using their names. It's there, but "not there." ;)
Gonna have to do it to this comment, too. Don't be offended--just trying to respect their privacy.

a little back story here...
I just went to New Orleans for some Mardi Gras goodness. Or badness, depending on your moral compass. So I got back Sunday night, checked email, and responded. I was in sort of a haze of lack of sleep and *ahem* other things. So, when the post wasn't there today, it confused me. ;)
If you ever need to do this again, please make a note of it or something. My grip on reality is only so strong here....;)
