    It's sad to see so many of my former friends die. I didn't know he had died until today when we stoped by a store to get a biscuit while on our way to Galax Va. and a JW that I had known 30 years ago said hi and mentioned it was bad that bro. Prewette died. They don't call me anymore when someone dies that I knew in the KH. He was the one I mentioned that had changed his view so much. There were two more people I know who died in the last couple of weeks. Either everyone we know dies or we die, whichever comes first.

    I'm so sorry, Undecided. That must have been rough on you, getting the news after the fact like that. Please accept my sympathies.

    sorry to hear about your loss.

    i keep bookmarked. it has newspapers all over the usa and the world that have web addys.

    i read obits about 2 or 3 times a week papers from areas where people i know live...

    its a small way to empower myself but i'll be damned if i'll hear about someone i care about dying weeks after the fact!

    My deep condolences Undecided. I certainly know how you feel - I?m still reeling from losing two wonderful people I grew up with and loved greatly who were killed in a plane crash in Zambia last week.

    Sorry Matty, It's bad to have friends killed like that. We just never know what will happen next.

    When I was talking to my mum about it I was feeling confused. I couldn?t console myself with thought of the resurrection anymore. It was once easy to trot out stock JW phrases in these circumstances but now I?ve lost my faith it?s difficult to cope with the idea that I probably won?t ever be seeing them again. I?ve probably cried a lot more over this one than I?ve ever done before over a bereavement.
