    I'm looking for your expert opinion 5

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me your expert opinion concerning the following 9 sentences?

    1. He had never been healthy, and he died in his thirties of consumption.
    2. He has been fallen by a sudden stroke. While it had not been a massive stroke, it had been a warning one severe enough to force him into retirement.
    3. When his wife finally went up stairs to call him, she found him stretched out in bed, his hands folded on his stomach, his expression placid and benign. He passed on gently in his sleep the night before.
    4. “John is gone, David.”
    David asked mechanically: “When doc?”
    “Early this morning. Roe and I were with him. He went in his sleep, David. He did not awaken again after you left him. I had thought it would be that way.”
    5. “I’m sorry” she said. “I make it a rule never to speak ill of the dead. Ididn’t know.”
    6. My friend was widowed last autumn.
    7. She died in childbirth.
    8. One of her brother died in infancy.
    9. He died very suddenly of a heart attack.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
