yo, i lost my mom in '13. i wasn't ready for it and i was very emotional. the one and only thing that made me feel, well not "better," but put it in perspective.
everyone goes through this. it is your duty as "offspring" to watch your parents die. if you don't outlive your parents, you're in a sense, worthless. descendants must actually descend.
it's hard. take some time. get wasted. scream. cry. but accept it. live more extra good to honor your lost loved ones.
