GreyBeard- nice post-thank you. Yes, in a way we are family of a sort. (My real family are not close with me.)
DesirousOfChange- I agree! We all know what is was like being witnesses and non-witnesses do not understand what we are going through.
Alot of good points being brought out here.
AnneB and exwhyzee- I agree with points you mention too.
It is nice being on this forum with others who do understand and most of us are trying to encourage each other even though what we believe,( or don't believe!) is different from each other. Thank you to all who have encouraged me!
