Mr. Mandela, I have dreamed of visiting the place of my natural origin-South Africa! You lived a long, life that many can learn from, you are in the history books for many reasons,I believe the main reason was for your humanitarian efforst and the way you fought for equality for black people and not only black peole but for all people. You will be missed Dearly. I plan to take my dream vacation to South Africa, in 2014 gods willing. I have never seen where a guest book will remain online permanently, but who desrves it more than you!Thank you for your world love and contributions to mankind~R.I.P

La Biblia menciona ves tras la promesa de la resureccion. Por ejemplo un angel or dijo a Daniel :"Descansaras pero te pondras depie para tu porsion al fin de los Dias"(Daniel 12:13). Jesus les dijo a los saduceos, lideres religiosos que no creian en la resureccion:"Estan equibocados, porque no conosen ni las escrituras no el poder de Dios " (Mateo 22:23,29) y el apostol Pablo afirmo :"Tengo Esperanza encuanto a Dios de que va haber resureccion asi de justos como de injustos "(Hechos 24:15)

At the funeral, a Chief said "A great tree has fallen." I have another view. There is nothing "fallen" in the burial of Mandela. His burial symbolizes the planting of a tree that, if nurtured, will grow into a mighty tree, mightiest in all Africa and the world. Those who have the place, can help the planet by planting a tree in memory of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

Nelson Mandela was a great statesman and a great individual. He stood up against injustice & inequality. He believed in peace, forgiveness and reconciliation and that everyone at least should have basic facilities. He touched the lives of the people who knew him and countless billions of people in South Africa and the world who did not. He made this world a better place. He will be sorely missed. He has earned his rest.
Rest in Peace Mr Mandela.

There are many men in history, like Mr. Mandela, who paid the highest price in life to give to others and make a profound difference. The greatest man on earth who did just that was Jesus Christ. He paid the ultimate sacrifice, his perfect human life so that ALL men, not just some, could obtain true freedom. The gift he gave us is the prospect of eternal life for all humans who are willing to learn Gods will and do it. John 3:16 and John 17:3.

Mr Mandela is indeed in the memory of our real Father and creator and his son, Jesus Christ.
December 13, 2013
To the Mandela Family

Heartfelt condolences on the loss of such an inspirational gentle man. God put Mr. Mandela on this earth to make a profound, relevant difference for all people in the world. May God's loving embrace guide his family during this very difficult time.

The beautiful man Mr. Mandela was resonates in a lot of us. His soul touched millions of people, and his humbleness will never be forgotten.

Thank you Mr. Mandela for your courage.

Thank you for your legacy, and I take the liberty to quote Mr. Mandela.

"The greatest glory in LIVING lies not in never falling but in RISING every time we fall".

God Bless Mr. Mandela
December 13, 2013

Dear Friends,
May God's love an comfort be on you during this difficult time you are facing. As a widow, I understand all too much what you have had to face these past few weeks. Although I live far away I want to extend a hug and a prayer to you. That you will find the strength that you need. No matter what anyone else says, this is close and personal. I truly feel your pain. I, too, will not be celebrating Christmas with my husband and my children will not have their father their to hand out presents. But both are indeed in heaven, sharing Christmas with the ONE who loves them the most. May you take comfort in this. While we don't know each other and though we may never see each other on this planet, we will see each other in heaven, one day and hold hands as one. Love to you all, in God's Holy Name. Angel

A truly great Politician. He really did care for all people. He forgave his enemies. Had he not forgiven them, nobody would have blamed him, and he would have been merely ordinary. Every now and again a good Politician is sent us in order that we do not lose faith in democracy. Thank you, Nelson Mandela.

There are many things I admire about Nelson Mandela, but I often think of how they said he approached chidren. With gentleness and a smile he would ask the child their name, then ask them what they wanted to do when they grew up. Once the answer was given, he would tell each of them "You will most certainly achieve this!" I thought that was remarkable. Hope. Encouagement. Kindness. THank you Nelson Mandela for all the things you taught us.

The world honored you today,oh what an image you bestowed upon us today. Your journey upward brought the world together for the first time and probably the last time.

One would have to admire and respect Nelson Mandela for the manner in which he sought equality for his nation. He demonstrated by example that peace and equality begins with each and every individual. We should first start to love and respect ourselves, then we should set the example for others. My thanks goes to Mr. Mandela for reinforcing to me that valuable, Christlike lesson. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mandela family in a petition that they remain united and in peace.

The one Quote that has changed my life by Nelson Mandela is
No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
I will remember it always. Rest is Peace Madeba.

December 09, 2013
It is a man of so nobler of character that will stand up when many sit down. A desire for all to have the same enjoyment in life is a momunental task for a human to take on. Working toward a goal and suffering in so many ways did not diminish his hope of a better world for all. In life he live, worked, and succeded. In death he is raised up because of his lofty accomplishments. What he fought for many years is a hope that the bible also entertains. The bible at Isaiah 65: 21-25 mentions of a time when there will be peace on earth and all will at this time have their own homes, and be at peace with the world. May you rest in peace and those who are mourning your absence at this time will look forward to seeing you again, alive and well. I extend to all who
are grieving and mourning this loss that you maybe comforted from the bible and the GOD of all comfort who will help you. I will keep you all family and friends in my prayers.

Wow when I consider the impact you made on us all in Mr. Williams African-American studies class. It was blessing to experience a modicum of your knowledge. Brother Nelson if I man will always live by the life he live your presence shall be timeless. If a man life can attempt to be measure life: one could choose shares his wisdom and sacrifice his own life for his brethren. When ones cup truly overflows into the metaphoric saucer of life it flows into the life of strangers such as I...Rest in Peace,,for you missed no one in life that you shall not touch in death..I propose to live as you taught peace should be a tactic not a choice.

You were truly blessed to have shared time on this earth with this great man.
There must have been times when you needed to be with him and could not, you did not understand just how deep his commitment was to right the wrongs of a system of oppression and racial segregation. He was selfless, humble and loved HUMANITY in spite of the ills inflicted on him and his family.
Kindly accept my sincerest condolences for your loss and may you find comfort in knowing that he has left the world in a better state than he found it.
HE HAS LED BY EXAMPLE!!! ALL WE ( THE WORLD ) HAVE TO DO NOW IS TO TAKE HEED.

He appeared saintly, to me. Another time I was close to him was when he came on his first visit to the United States at Riverside Church, NYC, June 21, 1990. He was received with shouts of joy and praise to God.

December 08, 2013
On behalf of Mu Boulé of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity, I express condolences to the Mandela family and to the citizens of South Africa. A complex man of many skills, Mandela symbolized a revolution against Apartheid, white minority rule, following which he nearly single-handedly prevented a civil war. "Mandela's biggest legacy was his remarkable lack of bitterness and the way he did not only talk about reconciliation, but he made it happen," said F.W. de Klerk, South Africa's last white president. Mandela is gone, yet he remains in all of our hearts.
December 08, 2013
To a beautiful man... That changed the world!!
December 08, 2013
The LORD raised you up to be a significant conduit to ending apartheid. Thou unworthy, the world has benefited by your example of your humility, forgiveness and quiet strength. May your family and the world be blessed by your legacy.
December 08, 2013
Thank you, Madiba, for being a brave and courageous man.
December 08, 2013
Nelson Mandela, you were such a powerful individual for your message and example of forgiveness. The way you conquered diversity with humility and bridged a nation was truly the work of a vessel for God. We would be a better society of people if we would remember and learn from your life.
December 08, 2013
Thank you for teaching the world to love. Your legacy will be passed on to our children for generations to come. My condolences.
December 08, 2013

Nelson Mandela was the true personification of words spoken by Jesus, recorded in Luke 6: 27 -35-37: "but love your enemies, do good and lend, hoping for nothing in return
December 08, 2013
You gave so much of yourself so others could be free. That's why you are so loved.
December 08, 2013
To the Mandela family, my sincerest, most heartfelt condolences. May time heal your wounds.

To all South Africans, I, from afar, share in your deep grief. Learn from Mr. Mandela's teachings well. Carry the messages forward and practice what he preached.

To the dearly departed Nelson, Rest in Peace, Tata Madiba. You followed your calling and did so with grace, courage, dignity and truth. We should all be so inclined. I, like countless others, am deeply indebted for your tireless works and sacrifices in raising the human consciousness one small step at a time.

A finer man the world could not have asked for. Like a small stone dropped in an ocean of turbulence, his words, wisdom, compassion and actions will ripple across the human consciousness for time immemorial. There are few who could have accomplished this in one lifetime. Nelson Mandela was one such person. He was the spirit of Ubuntu personified.

With never-ending respect, admiration and gratitude.

From: A humble follower to one of God's great servants,
December 08, 2013
Rest Madiba, Rest!

December 07, 2013

A Man of Peace

So now we lay him down to rest
And ponder for a while
What made this humble man
A beacon in our eyes

Was it his love for peace
For people black or white
Or was injustice his mortal foe
That kindled his passion for right

Man has a choice to be effect or cause
The latter was his path
For his voice was clear and strong
“Let my people go” !

So like men of peace before
Was made to feel the pain
Of cold austere solitude
But his spirit would never wane

For his eye was on that mountain
Where freedoms light did shine
Where men devoid of colour stand
Holding hands in that African sun

Oh Madiba your nation weeps
For it has lost a son
But you look on with no such tears
For you know your job is done.

By Colin Sherman

To the man I have always admired and one who has touched the
world in a most profound way. He has left a legacy of peace for all mankind.

December 07, 2013

"Those we love must someday pass beyond our present sight...must leave us and the world we know without their radiant light. But we know, that like a candle their lovely light will surely shine to brighten up another place more perfect...more divine. And in the realm of Heaven where they shine so warm and bright our beloved ones live forevermore in God's eternal light." May God embrace him in heaven as he embraced and loved the people of the world. Thank you Mr. Mandela for showing us what love is and for inspiring in others the goodness that this world needs. To your family, my sincerest condolences and prayers go out to you. May God give you comfort and peace.

~Remembering Nelson Mandela~
I'd like to build the world a home
and furnish it with LOVE
For apple trees and honey bees
and snow white turtle doves
I'd like to teach the world to sing
in PERFECT HARMONY
I'd like to hold it in my arms
and keep it company
I'd like to see the world for ONCE
all standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
for PEACE throughout the land
It's the REAL thing
what the world wants TODAY
That's the way it'll stay
with the real thing
It's the real thing
what the world wants to see
in perfect harmony
A song of peace that echoes on
And NEVER goes away
Put your hand in my hand let's begin today
With your hand in my hand let me find the way
I'd like to see the world for once all standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills for peace throughout the land.
~For Mandela - LOVE, PEACE, HARMONY It is the real thing!~

May the loss of Mr. Mandela and others who devoted their lives to justice for all, remind us of how much more needs to be done. Many "warriors" have come and gone in this quest.

2 Peter 3:13 lets us know, however, that human limitations will not stop the human family from being united in peace and love.

It assures us that "there are a new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to His promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell".

To the family,

I pray to God for your strength during this time of sorrow, we love each and everyone of you. The world is truly morning the loss of a great Civil Rights Soldier.

Thanks to God for sharing him with us for 95 years and Thank You Family for sharing him with this country.

"It is never my custom to use words lightly. If twenty-seven years in prison have done anything to us, it was to use the silence of solitude to make us understand how precious words are and how real speech is in its impact on the way people live and die.” - Nelson Mandela

Thank You King/President Mandela for what you have done for the world!

It is inspiration that you have shown that makes me continue to fight the fight that I am fighting right now, and I will never give up until my journey on this earth is over.

THANK YOU!

Countless millions of us are benefiting from your unselfish sacrifice.

Mr.Nelson Mandela shared his warmth, kindness and love to all mankind. He was "BLESSED" thus leaving a legacy for the world to learn from and carry on. Regardless of race, color or creed we were all equal in his eyes. Including those whom wrongfully judged him because he stood for what was right.He forgave them as so should we.

Mr.Nelson Mandela is now resting in "PEACE" for he completed his mission on this "EARTH".

My Blessings to all!

GOOD MAN DID HI PART ON EARTH ////MIKE PRZYSIEZNY
December 06, 2013
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

"Life like a mist appears for just a day then disappears tomorrow, all that we are can quickly fade away replaced with tears and sorrow. If a man should die can he live again? Here the promise God has made: He will call, the dead shall answer. They shall live at his command, for he will have a longing for the work of his own hand. So have faith and do not wonder, for our God will make us stand. And we shall live forever, as the work of his own hand." --Sing Praises to Jehovah

Another soldier had gone from the earth
And another star in heaven has been given birth

President Nelson Mandela is no longer alive
He was called from the earth's battlefield at the age of 95

He fought a good fight
Before he took his heavenly flight

He sat in prison for many many years
As his people blood flowed on Africa's land like dinosaur tears

Twenty Seven years he sat in a lonely prison cell all alone
But never gave up hope that one day he would be released to go home

He fought for freedom on West Africa's apartheid land
When he was a young man

They locked him up and tried to break him
But they couldn't for he saw light at the end of the tunnel even if it was dim

It was still light and where there's light there's hope
So he tied a knot at the end of the racist rope

And held on until freedom was his and jail was no longer his resident
He came out and was elected president

He accomplished so much for his country that he loved
Now his work on earth is finished as he transitions to the Father above

Goodbye Mr. Mandela you're gone from earth but not forgotten by none
For you proved nothing is impossible no matter how dark it might seem you kept the faith till you got it done

RIP

December 06, 2013
Rest in Peace Mr. Mandela. You were a one of a kind gentle soul and the world was a better place with you in it.
December 06, 2013
Thank you for standing up for something that you believed in. It is an example that we should live by everyday. Yes you endured pain that some of us could not bare-even for a year. All people of color can look at your face and see their grandfather or even grandmother in you and we should live to make our ancestors proud. My grandmother was my inspiration and best friend, she passed on 5 years ago and I tell her to this day that I am still living to make her proud of me. I also use to tell her that I wish I could be half the woman she is and even though I am still living by her examples I know that I will never be the person she was.

"If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything" Malcolm X

Thank you Mr. Mandela!
