I'm so sorry for your loss. But I wanted to say that just because your siblings weren't crying doesn't mean they don't care. They may not want to go down that road. They may be afraid to break down. Or they may be doing their best not to cry to be "strong" for you or for their kids. Just remember that crying is not the same as being weak. I learned that the hard way after losing my mom. I find it very difficult to cry over the loss but it's not for lack of loving my her. Here's a good quote for you, it's only from a movie but I think it applies. "Sometimes we love people so much that we have to be numb to it, because if we actually felt how much we loved them it would kill us." All my best wishes to you and your family!
Hi! I'm sorry about your mom. Everyone grieves differently, its ok to be angry, to cry. There are lots of books on grief if you like to read and there are grief groups or grief counseling. Please feel free to message me anytime, there are some very good, caring people on here.
