    Please accept my deep sympathy. What a privilege for you to have your mother live for 96 years. The Bible mentions that one who lives to 80 years is especially strong. (Psalm 90:10) Your mother surpassed that by 16 years, showing exceptional strength and a will to live. Take comfort in God’s promise concerning the hope of being reunited with her and living in a world without tears where sickness and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:4)
