I have to ask, how old was the cousin when he was baptized?
He was 16 years old when he was baptized. His dad was an Elder.
Is his grandmother a JW? Is she willing to see him?
Yes! His grandmother ( my aunt) is a baptized member. Her husband ( my uncle ) was an Elder. He passed away years ago. ( I posted about my cousin's hospital visit when his grandfather was dying).
My uncle was an Elder for 50 years. He was warned numerous times that he was not to have house visits from his disfellowshipped grandson. He was even threatened with removal as an Elder from the 800-pound gorilla- self-righteous Elder if he continued to see grandson.
My aunt has not seen her grandson in years after the threats to her husband and probably will never see her great-granddaughter.
My cousin's dad just sent him a baby gift with a card. He only addressed the card to my cousin's wife and granddaughter. For some stupid reason, he can't even write his son's name on the card to congratulate him.
