Thanks for the welcome! Your message found me doign very well today, thanks as I am so glad that I found this website and signed on. I live in a small South African coastal town that has an inordinate number of retired Dutch Reformed Church dominees (a Calvinistic religion beyond belief.) Their petty religion-raddled brains may make for good sport for any outspoken atheist, but good grief, what tedious, self-righteous, morally smug people the evangelical types are - so am very keen to join discussions on this website.
Hello Hello Brent. I hope that I am not pestering you, but for some reason I feel compelled to give you some feed back on a person level. As I previously stated "I can not imagine how you feel. Even if we as humans go through a situation that is very similar that doer not mean either person reacts or handles the situation the same.However my Papa passed away and had the later stages of Parkinson Disease as well as Alzheimer Disease. Hr had chose to drink heavily the bigger part of his life which once these two very deteriorating diseases took hold played very much against him. My Papa and I were VERY close, closer than my father and myself so this affected me pretty hard. So even though I can not even pretend to know how you are feeling iI can relate. Time took care of what i could not. But somehow I have a GREAT guess that you are going to be A-OK
I am very sorry. I can not imagine. I do send you the deepest of thoughts that the time for your healing will be speedy. If you ever need to vent or just plain ramble feel free. I wish you the BEST of luck and look forward corresponding with you.
