Hello, I did not know Mr. Massey personally but I was a huge fan of his music. I'm so sorry that I never got a chance to meet him in person to let him know that his uplifting music changed my life. Heaven has gained a wonderful singer & musician. God bless.

Condolences to the Massey family at the loss of Harold. I met him a few times when we had familiy or friends in the Jackson location. Harold was so nice when my Aunt Bruce Anne Martin and I went to see him to take care of her pre-need details. He told us about his singing and had many pictures that we enjoyed. We had a great conversation and Aunt Bruce Anne was very pleased when she left, knowing her wishes would be taken care of. I thank Harold for that - for making an awkward situation so much better. God bless and be with the family.
