Memories of your father fill my heart with love. Colleen and I would giggle in the back seat of the car as your mom slide all the way over and sat on the "hump", so that your dad could put his arm around her. But that image of their love and devotion to each other has stayed with me. What a wonderful full blessed life, which included sadness and joy, but your Dad showed everyone how to remain faithful and steadfast. His life is a beautiful example of trust in the Lord. My life has been blessed to have been a tiny part of the Heniff family. John will be missed. All our love and prayers

It is with heart-felt sympathy that we go before the Lord to offer up our prayers for all of you: Aunt Ruth, Julie, Nancy, John, Colleen, your spouses, and all of your children. When we are hurting, our Lord tends to our wounds, when we mourn, He sends the Comforter to gently help us through and finally, gives us joy in the morning.
2 Corinthians 1:3&4 says, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4) who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God."
He will be with you always to help you. And find peace in knowing that Uncle John loved God and that you will see him again in glory. God bless you always, Love Mary Ruth & Bob

Colleen, Jim and girls,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. The lord will stand beside you during the coming days and months and offer guidance and support. May all the wonderful memories, of your father, help bring peace to you at this very difficult time. Love, Linda, Brian, Kelsey and Erin
