Thank you all
I am sorry to have stuck an emotional responce from Man In Black and Anony Mous- I tried my best to hide my discust & be supportive to my mother, I tried to look at it from the aspect of..."well it should be good for her to get away for a few days to get her mind off of things"....
but really....they were married for 53 years, wasn't he worth skipping a convention for???? My brother cried so hard when she left Thursday morning, my heart just broke-
Yes, NRF George....the campfire was very symbolic of dad, his love of the outdoors and just sitting & relaxing by the fire drinking a beer (that was him in a nutshell)
OTWO, I read your previous thread...OMG it is so sad, unfortunately I now know how you feel on that one...and it is equally sad that JWs just don't get it....they are lost truly
To answer NewChapter's question....will I attend the JW memorial????? Well I struggle with that one (because it is bullshit and just a dog and pony show), but I will go...my brother's best friend is going for moral support for the both of us (he never was a JW and hates everything JW, but he is going to sit with us & I really appreciate his thoughtfulness).
Coffee Shop Guy has been so good through this...he spent a lot of time with my brother talking with him and I really think it helped, I love and appreciate him for all he is
