    He was basically a good man, just a believer in the religion. When we were both elders we were best of friends and then things deteriorated when I was not an elder for a while. Then after becoming an elder again, I slowly drifted away from the religion and he drifted further away from me. Such is life in the Organization.

    Sorry for your loss Minimus.

    There is always a sadness in this type of shunning, friendship not shared, family history lost, helping out during hard times. Simply being there for one another.

    Both of you were punished by the WTBTS except he didn't know he was being punished........ he probably thought he was doing the right thing....that the way to get you back in........ was to treat you like a stranger.

    Sorry you lost him before you lost him.

    So sorry for your loss. The same is in store for me in the not too distant future. It is so frustrating the divide this religion brings. Sad to lose these years to this divide when we still should just be loving sibs.

    My condolences.

    Thankfully he went quick! No pain , just heart gave and telling his wife his heart was feeling weird and he just died .
