    This last week I was e-mailed that my aunt had died. She was 95 years old and had a long a good life with a loving family around her. The reason this is more good news than bad is because due to the help of a member on this board I was able to reconnect with her. Because of this cult I was born into I never knew very much about my so called worldly relatives. My parents had nothing to do with them. It was not until I found out I may have a 1/2 brother out there I have never meant did a wonderful person on this board PM me and asked if she could help. She never could find my so called 1/2 brother but found several cousins and my aunt on my dads side. I was so thrilled I called my aunt and talked to her for over a hour. My wife said I was finally connecting with other family members for the first time in my life. It caused a inner peace within myself. So I want to thank a very special person who made all this possible. Thank you so much ( LoisLane looking for Superman). You made my life better and more fulfilled. I continue to maintain a close relationship with my 3 cousin by e-mail and cards and it was all because of you. You have made this world a little better because of your hard work. Thank you so much. Take care. Still Totally ADD

    I am so happy for you that you got to have that precious time with your loved one Still Totally.

    And I agree with you, LoisLane is a wonderful person and a gem on this forum!

    LoisLane was the 1st person here to PM me when I first joined and was very helpful to me in understanding how the site works.

    to have a friend you must be a friend, they say. LL is this type of person, i think.

    thanks again, Lois

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I'm happy to hear about you coming into contact with your "worldly" relatives. It's amazing that it's this exact word or a similarity of what the Pharisees used to call the common person as a form of disdain. The average JW doesn't even realize this.

    LoisLane.... is a good member but a much better person.

    Thanks for giving me your time and props.

    Could you imagine if I never made contact with my aunt. I would not know if she was still alive. I would have never got to talk to her and learn the other side of the story of why I she never talked to my parents again. How she saw the evil in the Wt. and how happy she was that I made it out of the cult. It was a very heart warming conversation I had with her. It will be a memory I will never forget.

    I feel ya. Because of how my "worldly" relatives got fed up with my newlywed parents new Cult religion being shoved down their throat, it caused a rift between my parents and mom's family that didn't heal until I was 10. Therefore, I didn't know that I had aunts, uncles, and cousins until I was 10 years old!!!!! Never met them, never knew about them. My parents simply moved away and never spoke about them - EVER. It took my mom's father becoming terminally ill with cancer to start to bring them together again. I now frequently see my cousins. My parents are dead. So is my uncle. We are all still here. It's insane what this religion has done to families.
