    The passage of time

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    After her husband's death, she consoled herself with the thought that she would get over it with the passage of time.

    Re: The passage of time

    The sentence looks good to me. 'It' could be replaced with 'the grief'.

    Re: The passage of time

    I am wondering if my sentence would still be correct if i cut out "with the thought".

    After her husband's, death she consoled herself that she would get over it with the passage of time.
