So very sorry to read of the loss of your husband . At the same time, seeing two people married for such a long time certainly honors our Creator who instituted marriage. I can only imagine how many memories you made and shared together. I hope that you will be able to smile at times when you reflect on the many fond memories you built. It is truly an amazing promise given to us at John 5:28,29. I pray that as you read this scripture, it can give you hope and strength to look forward to the day when we will see our loved ones again as promised. Deepest sympathy
