Few things in life will ever affect you more than the death of a parent.  Not only do you have to endure the intense pain of loss but you are also left to face a future that will be likely quite different from what you expected.  The Bible assures us that death will be no more.  May you find that such promise will help you cope with the loss of your  Mother,   My deepest sympathy to each of you.

John 5:28,29
Pslam 37:29
