      I am so sorry for your loss.  Melanoma has no rules.  There were no SNB's offered in 1984. Don't feel there was anything else to be done.  That far out from his primary most would have no issues, scans would not be continued.  My story is similar. Univ. of Penn. My primary was in 79.  Maybe we met sitting waiting for an exam.  27 years later mine came back. 

      Give yourself time, cherish your memories and continue working on ending this disease.
