'Very far away'

Hi,

Can I say “They are very special people; Even they are very far away from me”

Does the word “very far away” sounds natural?

I have heard many conversations using the word ‘very far away’.

Please share your opinions on this.

Thanks in advance.

    It's extremely common, but it should be ". . . even though they are . . . " (or if, or when, depending on what you mean). Also, no capital E following the semicolon; it's all one sentence.

    I would agree with pob14. But almost certainly you can drop the "from me" at the end because, in the context, the person to whom you're writing will know it's from you. In the UK, use of the semicolon can be controversial but here, I think it's not at all necessary. So you could say:
    They are very special people, even though they are very far away.G
