I am responding to this thread because you gave me the opportunity in another thread. Let me start by saying that I recognized the names you mention in the letter. I personally know the Cicuit Overseer and I was very surprised to read his response to your father. Although it's hard to judge him since I don't know exactly how the conversation went. But, I AM very sorry for your loss. Your dad seems like a man trying to do the right thing while circumstances were tough. Please be assured that Jehovah loves your dad and will not forget him. I also lost one of my parents, and it is very comforting to think of the hug I'm going to give him, when I welcome him in the resurrection. I'm sure you have thought of the day, you welcome him back. Like you say in the letter, if the elders mistreated your dad, they WILL have to answer to Jehovah. I pray that Jehovah comforts you during this time.
