Mr. Lomax showed us all that when you forgive you in noway change the past but you certainly do change the future... Mr. Lomax now that you are safely home may you rest in everlasting peace...
God bless you! Now you are truly free and going home!
Bless you for showing us the right way to live life.
you may be missed but respected for all your sacricees. RIP
What a great lesson we must learn! We can never imagine what he experienced, but the fact he could forgive is so amazing in a world with hyper-sensitive people who will not forgive for much less sins!!!
I look forward to the movie and re-reading his book again.
Mr. Lomax was born in Scotland and you did our country proud as a warrior and even more as a captive. You are now rewarded for your sacrifice Sir, and now only know the "Love of God" and have no wants. As a fellow Scot, I salute your valour.
Let your light of forgiveness shine.
Mr Eric Lomax.
May God comfort his family and grant Mr. Lomax with a crown of peace in Heaven.
The world owes more gratitude than we can ever repay to all the brave men who fought to defend the world's freedom in WWII.
May God's gentle peace fill your heartand comfort your soul today and
in the days to come, I am so very sorry for your loss. As you cherish
fond memories also know that God is with you and will provide peace
and hope in the days ahead.
Incredible story! An example for us all. Don't we all want to receive forgiveness? How much more so should we extend it to others.(Matt.6:12)I am so sorry for your loss.
I am truley amazed by this special man. Who has endured so much in his life time. Rest in peace you deserve it. No more will you suffer in the hands of others. My sympathy goes out to this mans family. God Bless all of you.
A blessed person, indeed. If only we all could have known his, and every individual story each war survivor has to tell, a very long time ago.
To heck with the sports stars and other current day "heroes". Mr. Lomax lived the true meaning of the word hero.
I am so sorry for your lost. May you and your family rely on God in this time of grief.
What an outstanding at the forgiveness! truly he has forgiven others their trespasses!
My sincere condolences to the Lomax family. God cares and will comfort you(Ps. 55:22).
May God Bless Eric Lomax and his family. He is an inspiration to us all. From a U.S. Army retired soldier.
Lomax family trust in the hearer of prayer and he will give you comfort at this time. (Psalm 68:2) I extend my sympathy to the family.
I am sorry I did not know you Eric Lomax. I would have been honored to stand in the presence of a man among men.
On behalf of the Aln Valley Railway of which he was an honorary member can I express condolences to all of his family. He was a hero and a gentleman.
It's very hard in life to find someone as forgiven as you but God has said to forgive and you did the right thing. Thank you sir for serving our country may God bless you and your family in so many ways.
Much appreciation for Mr. Lomax and the many others who exemplifies what it truly means to forgive. It remains me of our great teacher Jesus Christ who was able to forgive while dying on the torture stake (Luke 23:34). May we continue to learn from such selfless acts of love and forgiveness.
God bless you Mr. Lomax. I know your family is very proud of you and we definitely know you are in heaven,
Phyllis, Chicago, Il.
A very special special place awaits you in Heaven, Mr. Lomax. You were an extraordinary human being. Psalm 121..for you.
You're a better man than I am, Eric Lomax.
I hope for all that knew him receive comfort that he is one of God's true greats.. So many people, made of so much less, would have done the wrong thing. Thank you Mr. Lomax and may you Rest in Peace.
Mr. Lomax was a strong individual to go through all he went through. May you find comfort at Micah 4:3. This shows that in Gods New World, all that he fought for will be fulfilled. Psalms 37:10,11.
A true Hero!

Great hero, thanks for your service. Once Gen. Macarhur said "Soldiers never die, they just fade away" It's take a great hero and a great believer to forgive thos means Japaneses. Life is eternal; and love is immortal; and death is only a Horizon; and a Horizon is nothing but save the limit of our sight. Great hero, Death is the reward of life and you have won that reward with honor. My God rest your soul in peace.
Wow, one heck of a man and a man to be envied for forgiving his captors. I could have never done that. RIP Eric, you've earned it.
To forgive as you did, "You are a better man than I ...Mr. Lomax." May you RIP.
Brave Scottish Soldier....May he rest in peace. I salute you, fellow Scotsman! Your story has touched my heart...May you be remembered by your foes with regret for your humility of forgiveness. Maxwell
What an amazing man....to forgive is devine...I am sure that Eric is in the hands of a loving God...may his family find peace in knowing that he truly was a man of courage and served his country well.
With deepest sympathy to the family during your time grief. Psalms 46:1 says God is for us a refuge and strength and a help readily to be found during difficult times. May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.
May the eternal light shine upon him.....
