The only Scars in Heaven

Wouldn’t belong to me or you

There will be no such thing as broken

All the old will be made new

And the thought that makes me smile now

Even as the tears roll down

That the only scars in Heaven are on the hands that hold you now.
For you dear Madonna
For each and every one of you we give you
Our love, our Prayers
Oral, Nancy

Please accept our sincere condolences on your loss. I mentioned to Sally a few days ago how kind Allan was. As a young man I owned a run down car with a lot of mechanical issues. Allan would often repair the car and allow me to pay on pay day. His kindness is not forgotten.

Madonna and the Forsey Families.

Are with you at this time.

Madonna and Family, so sorry to hear of Allan’s passing. He loved working with people and taught many to drive at the Safety Council and was loved by all. He also taught me so much about auto body work over the years and was a great story teller. I certainly enjoyed his companionship and friendship over the years.

Sincere condolences during this time of grief and loss.. During my time in Grand Bank, the Forsey family were kind and hospitable to us as high school students. Kathy, Rodney, and Gracie were little kids then. May the Lord’s abiding presence be with all of you in the coming days as your comforter, helper, and friend as your loved one rejoices in Paradise.. May his best attributes live on in each of you. Maranatha.

A good man has fallen asleep but for him you need not weep, for his was a appointment he was ready to keep.
Heart right with God and his faith made known and a Christ like example clearly consistently shown. A teller of stories and a leader of song who now is rejoicing with the great blood bought throng.. His hands they are still and his heart at rest, and his spirit with Christ in the land of the blest. He overcame by the blood of the lamb and a steadfast hope in the Great I am. Lay him to rest beneath the sod and mark the place where his footsteps once trod. He will awaken at the trump and the shout and from the grave where you laid him he shall surly come out.

Sincere condolences to the Forsey family. Allan was the first person to greet me at the church door with an encouraging word. It was much appreciated. So very sorry for your loss.

Forsey Family,
I heard many wonderful stories about this man before I ever met him. When I moved to Grand Bank to finish high school I was told of a great CA leader at the church, Allan Forsey. Unfortunately, he was in the Sanatorium at the time while his wife was left at home to care for 4 little children. Through many prayers, Allen recovered and returned home to pick up where he left off. Allan was always cheerful and consistent in his walk with the Lord. “He fought a good fight he has won the race.” He has left behind a great legacy for his children whom He dearly loved..
Marilyn Butt

Madonna and family
Saddened to hear of Al’s passing.
Always appreciated his presence “on the door” as greeter / usher at our church especially since he was always positive, with a smile and when time permitted we had a little “yarn”
You will all miss him greatly, but must also go forward with so many great memories of a life well spent.
Please accept our condolences

To Madonna and all the Forsey clan.
We are feeling sad about Allan passing away, because we enjoyed seeing him when we went to visit. He always had something funny to tell us, and he would always have an opinion on the signs of the times. We will miss him, no doubt, but we know that we will meet again. He is gone Home now and he doesn’t hurt anymore! Cherish the memories and talk about him because it helps the healing process. Gone but not forgotten!

Madonna & family; I am very sorry to hear of Allan;’s passing. We always admired his fortitude, humor and abiding faith. Bill very much appreciated his friendship over the years. My sincere condolences.

Sorry to hear of your loss. Sending condolences to the Forsey Family. Dennis and Amanda Keeping and Family.

To Madonna, Nathaniel, Rod, Grace, Kathi, Lisa, Dawn, Peter and the entire Forsey family. We would like to offer our sincere condolences. I got to know Mr. Forsey through Nathaniel and my sister Ann. We met many years ago, and when I was only 19 yrs old, Mr Forsey was kind enough to paint my very first car, my old 1978 Monte Carlo, and what a splendid job he did on it. I believe he took great pride in his craft, whether it be body work and painting or carpentry etc. Everytime we visited he made us feel at home, and I really enjoyed the chats we had. RIP Mr. Forsey. May God comfort your family during their time of grief.

I was saddened to learn of Mr. Forsey’s passing. I have many fond memories of the five years I lived with you while I was attending university over 20 years ago. You all treated me not just as a boarder but as a member of your family and for that I will always be grateful. I will remember Mr. Forsey for his kind-hearted nature, his knack for fixing and building things, his love for his family, and, most importantly, his deep faith in God.
Please be assured of my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Madonna and Family,
So sorry to hear of Mr. Forseys passing. It was always a joy to sit with Mr. Forsey either on the edge of a pew at church, in mid-week bible study or his home and hear him speak of the ‘Good ole days’ and his love for God and family! He spoke of his love for God and his family with such a gleam in his eyes.
Mr. Forseys eyes have now seen, his ears are now hearing all the joys he spoke of and longed for in his eternal home!
Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.
