Psalms 90:10 says “Seventy is the sum of our years, or eighty, if we are strong.” Ms. Lejeune’s strength lasted 84 years. Yet that does not compare to eternal life promised at John 3:16. God gave Jesus the authority to heal the sick and power to raise the dead. (Luke 5:12, 13; John 11:39-44) Millions will be raised from death, providing them with a prospect to live forever. Yes, God will destroy death forever. (Isaiah 25:8) Envision the reunions as love ones, once separated by death, embrace one another again. More comfort can be found at jw.org. My deepest sympathy to the Lejeune family.
