Gosh, I wish I would have had that inotrmafion earlier! o0EqaVtmM qNPiCOXi8qM (b1z3yuQD, DC)

To BJ and other loved ones of Al: I'd known Al casually pretty much since moving to Bozeman in 1962; he was Gallatin County Democratic Central Committee Chair one of those early years, when recently retired MSU President Roland Renne ran for governor on the Democratic ticket in 1964. I always enjoyed talking politics with Al; he was an interesting, friendly man with strong convictions. I'm sure he'll be missed by everyone who knew him. (I"m very sorry I cannot come to the 1 p.m. service for him today, Sat. I would like to, but I have a previous engagement. My best wishes & regards to you who knew him better than I did. Mary Vant Hull (formerly El-Negoumy) (Bozeman, MT)

I was very sad to read about the passing of your precious loved one, and especially since we were created with the desire to live forever. May you hold on to all the wonderful memories of Allen McAlear and draw comfort from God’s word that he will resurrect those that we have lost and the promise found at Revelation 21:4, where God promises that he is going to do away with death forever. Nia Mosely (, MI)
