I would like to offer my condolences to the Aldridge family. 92 years is quite an accomplishment according to the Bible (Psalm 90:10) and I know Ms. Mid has left you with many precious memories and will be greatly missed. Hopefully scripture will give you comfort because our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) is promising us He will do away with man's worst enemy, death. This is found for us at Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."
