I never did like the betrayer/betrayed labels because I always felt that there was more than one way to be betrayed. <P>FS works better for me.

First of all, glad to see you're still around<BR>ThisAlex.<P>But for my vote,FS is good, but I would like to make another suggestion. As some of you know I have breast cancer, and we don't like to refer to ourselves as "victims"<BR>(there you can read betrayed) but as <BR>"survivors". I am not a breast cancer patient, or whatever, I am a survivor.<P>Therefore I suggest "SS" surviving spouse. One way or another we are all going to make it. With or without.<P>I realize that this acronym is peculiar to my situation. FA is really good. I just wanted to give a different spin on things.<P>Take care all.
