    As many of you know, my mother passed away this past week. Sitting here in the quiet of my hotel room I recalled a repeated wish I had since I was 10 years old. "If only mom would die I would be free (of the JWs)". It is really starting to sink in.... I AM FREE!!!!!. No longer do I have to play nicey nicey to her JW friends. No longer will I have to put up with disrespectful people in my home. At age 53, still young, I plan on traveling with my husband of 35 years. I also have my 3 grandchildren and another one due next month. I am free to visit them as a grandmother should now giving them 100% of my love and attention. Not that I did not do that before.... but I was so limited by my mother. My last tie to the Printing Company is GONE! And to recite a popular song title: I DID IT MY WAY.

    I'm sorry about your suffering and your mother's too. Live well and piss off all JWs who you know buy sending them emails with pictures of you, your husband, children, and grandchildren having fun on your holidays. Nothing says it better than a picture of happy people enjoying life.

    Peace be with you and everyone, who you love,

    So glad you feel that way Roberta.

    Everyone grieves in their own way and their own time.
