A Life of Peace by Alan Bonner

Thanks for reposting my brother’s “Life of Peace” I enjoyed reading it again. Although the theology is often questionable and the impact of biblical events on todays current events may be questioned, there is no doubt that my brother did, indeed, find Jesus while he was in prison, there is no doubt that he died at peace with the world, with himself, with Randy (Harrell), with Randy’s family, and with his Lord. Often in my many correspondences with my brother, I wondered if his prison conversion was genuine, but now I know that it was. He did, indeed, die at peace with everyone and, most especially, with himself. I am happy that Monica got down to visit with him just a few days before he died.

I will treasure forever my collection of his letters written from his experience in the county jail in Carrollton in 2003 until his death in 2014 just a few days after his 50th birthday. His body looked so unnatural because of the jaundice caused by his liver disease, but I will cherish forever knowing that the knowledge and religious conviction of faith in his Saviour overcame so much of his suffering caused by his abuse of hard drugs and liquor. Indeed, may my brother truly “Rest in Peace from a Life that truly ended in peace” because he really did fight the good fight of this life during his time on earth
