    The way the heading is written it is as tho the marriage killed him,my condolences to the entire family i love her music,but the heading should have read her husband died after a short/long illness then state the couple was married for 31 yrs.

    To be evicted from his earthly home to move into a Mansion with GOD not Man as his New Landlord, shows, he knew how to appreciate, respect, love , be obedient and serve, and be humble before man thereby qualifying him to receive his just reward. He has left a Legacy that we all can live by. R.I.P.
