Randy Alcorn's Blog: Friends
I’d like to address a recent question that came up in a blog comment last week. I figure other readers might have read the question and may be interested, since I've been asked it many times over the years.
The question was, from a biblical standpoint, is it okay to talk to our loved ones who've gone on to be with Jesus?

Terry Harris gave me permission to share her story about Randy and I’m doing so, without his knowledge or permission . :) I share it not just to give recognition to Randy, but as a reminder to us all that showing kindness to others can make a significant eternal difference in more than one person’s life.

Several people have asked me for copies of an email from Sono Harris that I read at her memorial service. Thought I should share it with more of you. No need to have known Sono in order to appreciate her words and her quotes from Thomas Brooks and John Newton.
I was just finishing up a different blog when Carol Hardin called and reminded us that today, October 8, is the 15th anniversary of Jerry’s death.
Jerry and I were best friends in grade school and high school. I wrote about him in my book In Light of Eternity. I gave him a whole chapter.

Last night, on Independence Day, our dear friend Sono Harris went home to be with Jesus. She is a precious and faithful sister, one of a kind, and all the more precious now as her faith has become sight.
The fireworks crackling all around us last night, even as I talked on the phone with some of the Harris family, spoke of a great event. Sono's entrance to the presence of her Savior was a truly great event for her, though hard on those left behind. Please pray for husband Gregg and children Josh, Joel, Alex, Brett, Sarah, Isaac, and James.
