My condolences to the family. May fond memories from a life well lived (97 years) bring you joy. Psalms 90:10 says, "The span of our life is 70 years, or 80 if one is especially strong". I hope you draw comfort from these memories, comfort from family and friends, and comfort from God during this difficult time, and know that by means of a resurrection, God is eager to restore life to those who have fallen asleep in death (John 5:28, 29).
