Thank you to all who have said prayers for our family. It was a nice service....the minister said he can tell if it was a good service by the funeral attenders - they all shed a tear too!
I know God now has her in his keeping & we all have her in our hearts.
Thank you once again & flowers to all.
You got it!
I've had another thought. Be sure to make the anniversary date in August special in some way. Take out the wedding pics or your photos through the year and give him a chance to remember. When my parents hit the 50 year mark, Daddy asked Mother don't we have a wedding album somewhere? They got it down and went slowly through the pictures together. When they were done, he said you're just as beautiful to me today as on that day. (And believe me, she wasn't to the rest of us.)
Yes we will do something special for my FIL. Actually yesterday he gave their big framed wedding photo - that hung above their bed - to my step-daughter. She wanted him to keep it but he insisted that she have it.
Sorry for your loss but it sounds like they had a wonderful life. 70 years married is such a gift. Take joy in the good life you have had with her and all the memory's that she has given to you. She is now in Gods hands.
Sending out prayers your way.

Prying for all of you in the days ahead. He may surprise you with his depth and inner strength through this.
my prayers and condoleances for husband, you and family.
My condolences and prayers for the family. They had a long life together and I am sure the blessings of family will always be with them.
Sincere sympathy to you and your husband and family. May God walk with you all as you make your way through your grief and may you all find strength to stand by your husband's dad who will probably be needing much support in order to cope with his deep sorrow. For their marriage to have endured for 69 years, they must have had a very special bond of love, respect and understanding: that is quite an achievement.
I am so sorry for your loss, it won't be easy I know. I lost my mom at age 88, and Dad lived another year and a half. He was lost without her, you have my deepest sympathy. Sharon
