Sorry to hear the loss of your on-line friend.
I am surprised that somebody was able to tell you what happened.
As for me, I used to give talks 2-3 times a month at one of the Spiritualist Churches.
Used to be called on to do messages in two Churches. If I should show up at
either Church today, I probably would still be called upon to give messages.
I even had once a 2 part Spiritual newspaper in which each section was 24 pages in tabloid format.
I suspect I got severely burned out doing that. I did the art work,
formatting, and everything else involved with publishing that paper.
Lately, I have been very 'busy' but still keep in touch with others of like mine.
