I am really sorry that you are missing your loved ones. You have to remember that your mother was suffering and has gone to a better place. Its sad and awful because we are the ones that are left behind. I find that concentrating on child care and work tends to make things slightly better and the pain eases. I’m slightly thick skinned and and am able to switch off because I had to keep our family together.
Half my family got wiped out within 8 years. It was horrendous as both my siblings didn’t show up. to.my. Mothers funeral and left me to do do everything and make decisions. But they wanted to know. About their money and her jewellery. I missed Not going on holiday with family or our meals together. Not being able to share stories. Just remember that you will see each other again and life is for living especially when you have children. My best friend died shortly after my mother and I was in shock for sometime. Everyone grieves differently but you need to give yourself time. I find meeting with relatives helps and talking with other family members.
