Dear family and friends of Tillie,
I am truly sorry for your loss. Even a long life doesn't seem like enough time with those we love. God sees the grief we are going through and has put special value on those who have grown old. Proverbs 16:31 says "Gray hair is a crown of beauty when it is found in the way of righteousness." Certainly God will not forget them once they have passed away. We are assured of the hope of seeing our loved ones again, for example in Acts 24:15. I hope you can find comfort in these versus as well as through the memories you have shared.
