    Shawn, you've gotten some really good advice on the board. I also suggest letting her be for a couple weeks and then sending a nice card. Once someone totally commits to the WTS they slowly begin to view "worldly" in generalities. Sure there may be a couple of nice ones, but the majority are wicked and evil. By taking a smaller role but still being supportive to her she will hopefully come around to view your friendship as important again. Whenever someone is first converted they get very zealous and want to do everything exactly right and tell everyone everything they've learned so far. That period lasts about 1-2 years (it's different for everybody). Keep in touch with her from time to time during that period and show her you are a good sincere caring individual and you may be able to have some of your friendship back when she settles down and becomes a more relaxed JW.
