  1. The Bible at Psalms 90:10 says: “the span of our life is 70 years, or 80 if one is especially strong.” Yes, your beloved Sidney was so blessed. May his strength trickle down to his family and friends so you may be comforted in the days ahead. Lean on God for ‘everlasting comfort’ 2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17 for he is close to those ‘brokenhearted’ Psalms 34:18. My deepest sympathy.
