So sorry.. I empathize with your loss. I had noticed that you weren't around much recently, and I wondered if you were ok. Sorry that I didn't say more.
In case you feel you could use some support of a different kind than you are receiving, there is a good book called The Grief Recovery Handbook that discusses actual action steps to help one directly address a loss and how to move into and through the feelings that keep some people stuck.
I'm sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences.
I'm trying to write something in order to ease your grief, but it's hard because death is a delicate thing. There are cultures that celebrates death as a start of a new beginning, and there are cultures that looks at death as a total end.
I myself believe that we don't really die. The only thing that dies is this bio suite we call the body. Our real essences can't die nor vanish, has always existed and is always going to exist. It's also been said that death is really hard for us that keep on living in this reality, because of all the lack, that creates our grief.
I could go on writing words for miles, and I could go even deeper on the topic, but I thing that the only thing that will help you the best, is yourself and what your heart is telling you to be true. If you need to grieve, then grieve and don't hold back!
And whatever you need to do, just listen to your heart, your mom will be there to guide you!
We all struggle to make tomorrow look like yesterday!
Get rid of your past and let the future unfold from the now. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

Condolences. Parents (and children) comprise some of the core columns in the architecture of our lives and when they pass, although everything is the same, the building seems very different and it takes time to adjust on many levels.
One way of looking at families - and of course there are many - is to regard them as lineages of virtue, its development or lack thereof. So the best we can do is continue whatever lineage of virtue we have received from those who came before and hopefully pass on even more to those whom we bring into the world later.

Very sorry to hear. My wife's father died on the day before Christmas Eve, two days after the doctor told him he had at least a few weeks left. Sadly, my wife was not able to travel to see him in time before his passing. Trust me when I say we know what you are going through.
