    Such a long life is a thing to be appreciated. Please accept my sincere condolences. The Bible provides comfort and a degree of peace from bereavement,  such as you are now experiencing.  "I am the resurrection and the life; the one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life, and everyone who is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all.  Do you believe this?"  (John 11:25,26)
