Everything will be alright

Location: Benton LA USA

By: John May

In 1978 I went to the funeral mass of a a co-worker of mine who was in his late 20s and much liked. It troubled me deeply that such a young man that was so loved by all had died. During the mass I saw a hooded figure standing at the right side of his casket. Emediately I felt a peacefulness come over me and heard the words "everything will be alright". The church was crowded and I thought I was just imagining this. My brain said no way but my heart said this is real. About 15 years later I visited a saintly friend in the hospital who was dying of cancer. He told me he had a similar experience with an angel who told him, "everything will be alright". Whenever life starts getting me down I remember these words of hope.
