It sounds to me like you are just coping and getting through. There is no right way to grieve, but it is an empty, lonely place to be. Please know that I am thinking of you and sending you many, many belated hugs.
Staying in the moment is the best place to be, try not to think too far forward or too far back, hold onto your memories, but don't get overwhelmed by them. I hope your pain eases my friend, and know we are here to listen and hold your hand. I'm sorry I haven't been around for a while, but I got out of hospital this morning and I am here now. Lean on us, we love you.
with all i have, i am praying for you. you are going through so much, i pray that you are given a sense of calm and peace and comfort at this difficult time. Gail, lean on us and let us help you. i am sure your mama's service will be a beautiful celebration of a wonderful lady who is now at peace.
I love you Gail and im praying like a mad woman,
I will find a way or make one. –Phillip Sidney 1554-1586
All that I am and all that I shall ever be, I owe to my Angel Mother.

Dear Sweet Nanners,
I have been trying to come up with the right words to say to you but at moments like this I feel any words are the right words in letting you know how sorry I am at the death of your Mother. I do believe you have made the right decision so never regret letting go of your Mom here on this earth.
Let the tears fall my dear friend and keep that special place in your heart to hold all the wonderful memories you have of your Mom. Allow yourself to grieve in your own way.
I know the service will be beautiful...........honor her life and celebrate how great she was. My prayers and sympathy to you and all of your family. I am posting my favorite verse for you and I think this is the first time I have shared this..................
I cannot say, and I will not sayThat she is dead, she is just away!With a Cheery Smile and a wave of the handShe has wandered into an unknown land.
And left us dreaming how very fairIt needs must be since she lingers there,And you - oh you, who the wildest yearnFor the old-time step and the glad return.
Think of her fairing on, as dearIn the love of there, as the love of here,Think of her still as the same, I say.she is not dead - she is just away.
- James Whiteomb Riley
This verse touched my heart so much that I had "He is just away" etched on my son's gravestone.
My sincere love to you,
I am with you in heart and soul today and I am sure your Mother's service was bittersweet but a beautiful tribute to her.
Hugs and Blessings
I am thinking of you today sweet lady.
