Dear Monahan family,
I am very sorry for your loss. A scripture that encouraged me very much when I have lost loved ones in death is Revelation 21:4. It says “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore the former things have passed away.”
Al was a dear Korean war veterans friend. We together helped carry the Villages section of chapter 169 through some difficult times. After I left Florida to retire near family in Bloomington, IL, Al carried on. His efforts provided the adhesive needed to enable the chapter to achieve the great success it now has in the Villages. I will miss Al, my condolences to all the family members.
Our deepest sympathy.
Love, Fred & Ann
When we lose a close family member like a parent or a child, the pain and suffering seems endless. Their memory will live with us but their is always hope for them. The Bible shows that God has both the ability and the desire to bring back the dead. He keeps in his limitless memory a detailed record of each person he will resurrect by means of his almighty power. (Job 37:23; Matthew 10:30; Luke 20:37, 38) God is able to restore the dead to life, and he wants to! Describing the coming resurrection, the Bible says of God: “You will long for the work of your hands.”—Job 14:15. My most sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Monahan. This article will help you cope through this hard times that is losing a loved one.
