Hey oompa..I love to read your posts.You have a great sense of humor!
Glad to hear that your Hellders are leaving you in peace. My situation has been the same so far. In fact,there is a "brother" that a few months ago I would have said was my best friend who won't even talk to me.My JW wife called him to ask him to "talk some sense into me." He said no;he was washing his hands of me. Keep in mind that not only have I not been disfellowshiped,no one (including my wife) knows how far gone I am. 99% of the people at my hall probably haven't even missed me. So much for "By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves" huh?
BTW...I would like to see that letter you were talking about if you wouldn't mind PMing it to me.
