Truly one of the greats. One that we all looked up to and glad to know. I was proud to call him dad too. Mary you are always in my prayers and still, as always, a mom to me. God bless him and the Messina family. All the Gaurdian Angels up there now have a new best friend as he was our friend, Dad, husband, and much much more. Rest in peace as we all choose to remember and never forget you…Dad.

Hi my name is Kayla and I am a local bible teacher. I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be no more. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during these difficult times.
