    Default For years, he had suffered

    Please, would you correct these sentences. I am not sure if I have punctuated them correctly.

    1. For years, he had suffered from a severe illness, which prevented him from leading a normal life.
    2.The assailant shot the man in the legs, which prevented him from escaping.
    3. She could never forget her friend who took his own life when they were abroad.

    1. For years, he had suffered from a severe illness, which prevented him from leading a normal life. Delete the first comma.
    2.The assailant shot the man in the legs, which prevented him from escaping. OK.
    3. She could never forget her friend who took his own life when they were abroad.Substitute "had taken" for "took".
    Bhai.
