or did you hate them all?
Did You Have A Favorite Elder?
I loved Glen Bryant.... Montreal.
I loved Ernie Heisterman..."
He was the big brother that I never had.
Killed in a drowning accident in 1993.
Broke my heart.
I had 2 favourites and they both had physical disabilities
edit: they both came closest to thinking outside the box
I had a lot of elder buddies but only one did I trust. And he didn't last long.
Yeah, there was one that I loved trusted more than the others. He seemed more compassionate and sincere.
Honestly, I loved Paul Carlson. He died in 1990 along with his wife, because his son killed them both. I thought he was such a great guy, just a big teddy bear, good hearted...and he really tried to be a good elder.
I liked him as an elder better than my dad the elder, from the "elderly" perspective.
Yes, and I heard he was deleted as an elder, because he wasn't bringing people's confessions to the boe for jc's.
There was a wonderful man in the Ardmore, Oklahoma congregation named Tracy Gilliam. He was a few years older than me, so I've known him my entire life. He was, and I assume still is, the most honest hearted, kind natured, genuine JW I have ever known. He moved to the Pacific NW a few years ago, and I really miss him.
Tracy G.- Last of the good guys and a hell of a basketball player.
