    My thoughts and prayers are with the family. How sad it is to lose a loved one in death. The Bible speaks of death as an enemy that will soon be brought to nothing. May you draw comfort and strength from the promise at Revelation 21:3,4 where it says in part, "God will wipe all tears from their eyes and death will be no more." Mrs. Elder is now in God's memory with the hope of benefitting from the promises that will be fulfilled under God's Kingdom arrangement.
