  4. What a wonderful long life your loved had however this 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.”
