10years to recover

In 1976 my mother passed away, at the time I was married with two children so after the funeral I continued with my life. For the next ten years I was very upset, A very Angry man and in private would burst into tears for no apparent reason. Then after the ten years were over I started to feel better and could cope with life a lot easier. I think that I was grieving for my Mother for those years.
8 years ago I lost my wife and although I don’t feel angry I still cry at the slightest soppy thing and I wonder if this will continue until 10 years have passed?
