    What a privilege to have your mother live for 95 years! The Bible mentions that a person living for 80 years is especially strong. (Psalm 90:10) Your mother surpassed that by 15 years showing her strength and will to live. Take comfort in God’s promise concerning the hope of being reunited with her and living in a world without tears. (Revelation 21:4)
