DNA Leader Sends Condolences to Munroe Family

Democratic National Alliance (DNA) Leader Branville McCartney last night said The Bahamas lost one of its greatest sons; a devout man of God; author, activist philanthropist, a thinker, preacher, teacher and a nationalist in Dr. Myles Munroe when he was killed in a plane crash Sunday afternoon.

“My wife Lisa and I were deeply saddened to hear of the sudden passing, of Dr. Munroe and his wife as well as the seven other passengers on board that ill-fated flight,” he said in a statement. “We offer our condolences to their families and friends and the entire membership of the BFM family.

“As a world renowned pastor and author, Dr. Munroe’s life and work has been a shining example to all Bahamians of God’s ability to work through his human vessels. At the time of his death, Dr. Munroe was preparing to participate in the latest in a series of leadership conferences hosted by his organisation on Grand Bahama Island. This is indicative of the life Dr. Munroe led. He was always eternally invested in the future and development of our great country, its direction, the strength of its leadership and its focus on the will of God. His work as a religious and community leader over the years has inspired a generation of Bahamians.”

Mr. McCartney said famed British novelist and writer George Elliot wrote, “Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.”

“In that sense we can all rest assured that Dr. Munroe’s legacy is one which will continue to impact and inspire generations of great Bahamians,” he added. “He will not be forgotten. By virtue of his faith, his honesty, his patriotism and his love for God, we are assured that he now rests in the arms of the creator and that he will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew him and loved him.

“May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in eternal peace.”
