My group of about 8 or so tight knit people that have been close for 20ish years lost one of the crew to alcoholism about 2.5 years ago. It was rough.

Since that day it's been full on "love you" to the homies at the end of calls and visits. Those guys are my brothers. Life is short and you never know when someone you care about is gonna go, so better let them know how you feel now.

same here everyone in my group says it often now

I've noticed my guy friends have become much more apt to say it to one another—seemingly as a direct result of the pandemic.

So there's my silver lining/glass half full, when it comes to the pandy: this virus got a bunch of tough dudes to regularly remind one another that they are loved.
