To the family and friends of John Henry Massey: I am so sorry for the loss of your family member. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from our family. The bible offers so much comfort for the family. At Revelation 21:4 it reminds us that death will soon no longer threaten the human family and at Isaiah 25:8 Isaiah 26:19 and John 5:28-29 all offers hope for the dead. Living in a earth full of peace and perfection. May you find comfort in knowing your family member is resting safely in God's limitless memory.
