There are many similar quotes out there, but George Eliot's "Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them", sums most of them up nicely, and steers us well along the path that we should, at our own pace, tread when faced with the death of our loved ones.
During the height of lockdown, my Paternal uncle died, the last of my blood relatives of that generation to pass, aged 95, and I was reminded once more, as if I needed it, of my own place in that queue that you cannot leave, and how short are the days that we all have to dance in the sun, before our own evening, and night arrives.

Thanks for your thoughts Metro.

Mums time came on Wednesday afternoon. Peacefully at home with my brother holding her hand and other family members there.

She’ll join Dad and say hello to my brother in law who passed away suddenly last year.
Sad times but happy that she went peacefully from this world into the next (wherever or whatever that may be).
