One thing my Pastor shared with us when her mother passed was that after having a hard time dealing with the loss. God reminded her that the time she will spend with her in Heaven will be much longer than the time she spent on earth with her. Look forward to lifetime you will have with her. Peace and Blessings to you all!!!!
