    Lovely and insightful OM. I knew a "Clarice" too. There are many good people amongst Jehovah's Witnesses.

    In the words of Duke Ellington & Bob Russell I...

    "Don't Get Around Much Anymore". least to JWN.

    There's probably about 5-10 posts I've made on JWN (out of thousands of fluff-stuff) that on re-reading are, IMO, worth pointing out to all the new-comers that have joined since. I know this sounds self-promoting, and I suppose it is to a certain extent, but that's truly not my intent. Just want to help point out what I consider to be a "Best Of" post to save people the hassle of sifting through tons of fluff.

    Now get out and enjoy life!!

    That was very nice to read of your time with Clarice.

    I wish I had known her too.

    May I ask are you in a successful Fade?

    Love and Hugs to You and Yours,

    Just Lois

    PS. Give me a few minutes and I will PM you.

    LoisLane: "May I ask are you in a successful Fade?"

    Yes, our now-young-adult children never got baptized. Oldest child quit meetings & publishing cold-turkey about 3.5 years ago. The rest of us quit attending almost completely about 2 years ago. My son and I went to the Memorial this year. We have also attended a JW funeral.

    That's about it.

    I am glad you bumped this to the top Open Mind. It was beautifully written and it made me sit and think of those that are special in my life. Clarice is a special lady and we would all do well to live life to the fullest like she did. I am happy to hear your family is out and you are together!

    My wife and I recently summited Half Dome with some ex-JWs. It was a spectacular experience.

    Clarice would be smiling.

    Glad after all these years I finally saw this thread. Beautiful story and I'm glad to see you had a successful fade.
