Death and Delta E-certificate

My husband of 29 years passed away last month with 70,000+ SkyMiles and an e-certificate for $800 in his Delta account. Thanks to a FlyerTalk search, I know the miles are officially forfeited, and I also know that some people manage to use them anyway. I have not, however, been able to find out if it is possible for someone to use the e-certificate which he obtained when he had to cancel a trip due to his final illness. It is good through April of next year if that matters. Any guidance would be appreciated.
