My son would want this anonymous and so I won’t list his name. We got out of TF when I was just 30 and my kids were quite young. Even though the direction TF was going, from prostitution “for Jesus” and then was taking the turn towards child abuse of the worst kind, with children being considered adults by age 12, I got out when they were in early elementary. I feel very fortunate for that, but still there was so much damage to work through. My eldest son recently passed. It was not a suicide but a battle against stage 4 cancer.
We all did a lot of surviving after leaving but I am happy to say he thrived after a rough start. He was well respected and a mentor for colleagues and new students and he loved living larger than life- strong as steel and gentle and kind on the inside. We talked almost every day and I miss him so much. I feel cut to the core, missing him. But I am glad his shortened life was a very full one. It is what I would wish for anyone. Any age. After getting out. Seize the day. Life is too short. Find your passion and move on.
So loved. So missed So devastating.
