What a wonderful long life your loved had however as you know time does not diminish the sting of death. I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family. May you find some comfort in this thought found in Psalm 34:18 that says in part "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit."
