I have been AWOL for a while. I lost my husband to cancer after a long couragous battle of 5 years. I honored his wishes with a Catholic mass. My youngest JW (active) sister attended, sat in the back row and cried. My other sister and BIL attended the after reception. I have received a number of sympathy cards from JWs. His "service" was a great tribute to him. Quite unlike the "infomercial" given at the KH.
