8. Your feelings and behaviors are normal
...and it may take some time before you adjust to your new reality. I lost my mother suddenly, too, and you don't have the opportunity to prepare in advance. If you find yourself getting into the shoulda, coulda, woulda's - you need to shift your focus to the good things you shared. Now your brain is going through all the attics of your life, as Jerry Garcia sang it, to look at those old photos and re-imagine memories.

It's only been a few days. It will take time. Do not feel like to have to dwell on his death all the time in order to be a "good daughter," tho, either.
