Emmy, I'm so sorry to hear it. It is SO hard to lose someone you love. Don't be afraid to grieve for her whenever you need to, but also to take joy in the fact that you had a loving mother. Treasure your memories of her and carry on her love!

Emmy, I am so sorry for your loss. As you mourn of the next months and years be kind to one another and recognise that everyone reacts to death of a loved one in different ways. There is no way of knowing how we will react before the event. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, and some may retreat into their shell, others may weep, others may get a spurt of activity to help them go through the process.
Any one who tells you several months down the line that you "should be over it by now" is to be politely ignored. They either have no heart or have not been through it. There is no time limit to grief. You will have good days and bad days but each of your family will react differently, so remember that and allow each other to grieve in their own way. My heartfelt sympathies are with you and with your family. May God bring people around you who will be sensitive to your needs and support you.
