Everyone finds their own way I suppose.
you are absolutely right, wouldn't be for me either, however, just thought I'd mention it, b/c I had a girlfriend who attended one and it helped her....but yes, indeed, wouldn't be for me either.

sending thoughts and prayers...for peace and comfort...

Correct, Steve. I found the more "impersonal" forum here to be the help I needed. Not that it was really "impersonal". I have connected with so many individuals on here for times of need that as I have said for so many years, they saved my life. I believe GOD put this forum in my life to do just that.

I don't NEED this forum anymore but I am here, not as a voyeur but as an experienced person with death and healing and try to give people some hope. I had none but wonderful old timers gave me some (and GOD). I don't think any of them post anymore, I assume they have found a life after death, hopefully not the alternative. I, on the other hand, am so grateful that I stay.

I felt that way when I went to a grief group after my husband died. There was a really loud, angry guy and a woman who had lost her sister 3 1/2 years prior. I couldn't deal with them.
