Yes, I have one very old friend, that I still keep in touch with. Until I get the official "axe", I think she will continue to allow me in her life. I keep telling myself that as soon as there is a announcement made regarding my husband and I, she will have to keep secret our visits, or will have to "cut me off" unless she wants to get the axe too for associating with me. She calls from time to time, to see how we are and fills me in on the latest gossip and lies being made up about us. The latest is, we suposedly are publishing literature, have started our own religon, and even have started a web site called "The True Jehovahs Witnesses"!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!! She sees how much this hurts, and how unfair they are. She also knows these rumors are untrue, and she cannot believe how much my so called friends are delibertatly spreading lies and slandering my good name. She told me she is so sick of it, and she wishes people would quit talking about us. She has stuck up for us numerous times. I am thankful she can see through the lies. I originally told her of our questioning 607. She said she would look into it too. But, she never has come back to me to let me know she has even tried. I think she is afraid to look into it. I told her that if we get disfellowshipped for questions, then that would be the cruelest most unfair thing that could ever happen. She agreed. I know our day is coming for the axe. And soon! It will be interesting how my friend reacts. It may open the door or it may shut the door. Anyhow, that has been my experience. All my other so called "friends" are conditional. Some friends!!
