Just to help those who have seen the word mentioned in any chatroom and don`t really know the origins. "shrine". Used to mock something of mine of which the sayer doesn`t have any empathy but finds it extremely comical. Origins are that i had a close online friend, over 15 years ago now .Not this chat server but a well known server. I had been talking /chatting with this friend for around 3 years and she was one of a few who i phoned many times because she had an awful and ,as happened ,a life threatening condition. She was in her early to mid 50`s . Cutting a long story short one day when i phoned i had no reply which i found very odd. I sensed something was wrong but kept phoning about the same time each day from a Wednesday. On Saturday i received an Email from her sister which informed me ( along with others) that the friend had passed away on the Friday . I thought this not quite right and wrote to the sister to ask if a mistake had been made with the date of her death. I was right ;she had passed on the Wednesday night but not been found until Friday ,though her parents and sisters and brother lived in the same Town. Feeling very sad i decided to create a small area of garden which would be dedicated to her memory. My wife was in full agreement and helped me with the garden. We named it after the lady and called it a "shrine ". It was about 6ft x 2ft in size and we filled it with lovely flowers. It has been looked after ever since then but i wanted to explain why the chatters on this site have found it very funny to mention the "shrine " They obviously have no empathy with matters of this sort ,considering the sort of work which they claim to be employed in !. If anyone wants to know more or the names of the mentally aflicted members who find fun in death then ask me. Any comments are welcome ,even negative ones .I can answer them .
