I was sorry to read about the loss of your beloved family member. May the thought at Psalm 90:10 that speaks about our lifespan being 70 years or 80 if we are especially strong bring some comfort. It appears your family member had special mightiness to enjoy additional beautiful years.

To the Family:
Very sorry for your loss. In the days, weeks, months ahead may you be comforted by the memories of the good times you shared together and the promises found at Isaiah 26:19 and John 11:23,24.
