I am sorry to hear about your loss. My prayers are with you.
I lost my mom when she was only forty-six...she was a ten year survivor of breast cancer, and then it reared its ugly head and took her away in the
shortest amount of time. It was kind of brutal; my Granddad died in February, and my Mom died in July (the 4th of July, to be exact...she would have
liked that). So, in the first year of marriage with my wife (22 years this June), I lost the two people on this planet that I was closest to. My Mimi,
who was married to my Granddad for over fifty years, became a shell of herself for the last years of her life before she finally passed. That took the
"trifecta" from my life...the three people that I cherished and cared about the most.
It was hard then, and it is still hard now. You do not have to get over it any time soon. It is ok to be upset, it is ok to be angry, and it is ok to
feel bad about your circumstances.
But, I would be remiss if I did not quote the Apostle Paul:
"Oh Death, where is thy sting? Oh grave, where is thy victory?"
I believe that with my whole heart. The same Apostle tells us that we are "surrounded by a cloud of witnesses", and I believe that as well.
I feel for you, and I am glad that your loved one passed in peace, and not physical/emotional torment.
Prayers up for you.
