    I'm so sorry sweetie...what a sad situation and uncomfortable (to say the least) circumstances.

    Sending some sympathy...cathy l.

    Sorry for your loss, Brenda, but it was one of those blessings wasn't it. Alzheimer's is a death in itself.

    At any rate, I'm glad you're going; be supportive of your mother, she'll be glad for it. Some unasked for

    advice: don't overdo the 'look' just to make a statement. Just be there for mom, and make a statement that

    way. At any rate, you have my sympathy.

    sorry about your dad ((brenda))

    you think you're mom will leave the JWs now? I totally relate to your comment that (I guess, if there is an afterlife) he really knows about JWs now. If there is an afterlife and he's watching all of you, you are the one he knows was right all along.

    Our deepest condolences are with you and yours. My wife lost her dad 3 weeks before our wedding. We enjoyed seeing every family member and friend regardless of their religious affiliation.

    Whatever you decide to do, I hope it works out well for you.

    p.s. Your first sentence reminds me of the first sentence in "The Stranger" by Albert Camus.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. Hope your mom finds her way ok now. Even though the cult is cruel and heartless, she needs you there and I am glad to see you will be there for her.

    Glad also that they had not been as cruel as you thought by not informing you of his death in the past.

    Peace to you and yours -
