    Its so hard, I lost my dad two years ago and I still miss him so much.  I would suggest that you cannot actually do anything, just let yourself grieve, its a long process but every day it sort of gets easier.  Dont fight the grief, just accept its going to be painful, like nothing you have ever felt before.  I just sat and thought about the good things we had together, looked at photos, I still do.  Dont be hard on yourself accept the help of other and tell them how you feel.  Time is the best healer of all and dont be ashamed to say you cannot do the normal things in life for a while. I am so sorry for our loss.

    time...although you lose someone physically, you really never lose them in spiritual sense. It's the actual physical being your losing not anything else just simply a temporary shell that finally breaks free to let the one we "lost" be free to do other wills.

    My mother's death was tragic and unexpected and it changed my life forever.  My best friend is gone!  It took me several years to start healing and now I can look back to the good times we shared and even laugh. Hope kept me going, hoping she was in a better place and that one day I will be with her again.  Hoping she is beside me as I live my life.  Knowing she wants me to heal and continue my life to the best of my ability.  I hope she is proud of me.
