    The answer to many of your questions is "Soon" followed by "Pray More + Wait on Jehovah".

    the good news is your 3 score and ten is now overspent--so its the resurrection queue for you.

    the even better news is you can now leave everything to the society. you might even get a thankyou email from them.

    And another one

    If I Will everything to the WT will they pay for my funeral , hang on two nice elders helped me write my Will but my son ripped my pen away as I was about to sign it and swore like a trooper, only person I knew who could do that was his mother and she keeps tellingng me to walk downstairs and not use the stairlift, she getting forgetful, stairs littered with washing but make it somehow.

    She helped me settle down in an armchair with my favourite cushion, she really getting forgetful, cushions are to sit on not breathe through. Got a Bank Statement and it appeared to show no money, son said he had helpfully moved it to his account so he could be sure WT eventually got it, wonderful thoughtful lad.

    Door seems to be locked and my keys do not work and I noticed the friendly elders ringing doorbell but apparently batteries out for a service, more thoughtful children. Landline phone does not work now and I never used a smartphone, son said he would make all calls for me, good lad.

    My medicine for month brought by my son, ignorant doctor never told me he was changing it and lots of tablets now that make me sleepy, son saved me a trip out so thanks.

    Really good that when I felt quite bad my son went to the doctors rather than ring him from here. Apparently doctor says not to worry so that's good.

    In my slumbers I think I see figures all removing all my various valuable porcelain collection, Lladro, apparently it being moved to stop me falling over it, odd really as it all on high shelves but son knows best.

    My wife brought me a cup of tea in bed and oddly my son asked me to test my old favourite fountain pen, he worried that unused it might dry up. He had a piece of,paper and just asked me to sign it at the bottom and after just my signature he said, "Oh good, that worked, as he smiled at his mother" he wiped pen away and said he would look,after it.

    Woke up in a new room, quite crowded in here , about 1444,000 of us here , no organisation, someonesaid we should sort ourselves into twelve tribes or something. No sign of family, no food and quite cold, apparently boss will,address us tomorrow, whenever that is.

    Good OP!

    Other questions old people could ask include:

    • When will I just grow up and think for myself?
    • Why have I been in this organization for decades and kept swallowing the superficial line about how close the end is?
    • Why do I need to be told who I should shun and not question it?
    • Why does the Governing Body allow wickedness among the brothers?
    • If Satan is behind me, can he also be in front?
    • Why does JW org shorten Matthew 24:14 on its homepage, leaving out the most pertinent part: "...and then the end will come"? (i.e., "This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth.")
    • Why can't the Governing Body underline the correct answers for the Watchtower Study to doubly ensure brothers won't stray from the correct answers?
    • Why does jw organization ignore the Biblical instruction for elders to take care of widows and orphans?
