John lived a long and full life. It was not
God's original plan for us to be born, grow old and die. This condition was brought about by sin, and is being reverse by the resurrection of Christ. The last enemy death is to be brought to nothing. Take comfort remembering the memories of John while you wait on God promise of the resurrection. 1 Corinthians 15:26 and John 5:28. Please accept my deepest sympathy to the family.
