    Thanks. I have an ex-husband who was Mormon (not FLDS) and he recently committed suicide in Seattle. I made a website for him. I think that his Mormon beginnings gave him a very confusing beginning. His family was not FLDS but he did discover his dad had a second family, so there was dishonesty. ​Your interviews were helpful to learn that there were good people who got so messed up bu religion.
