Afraid for the future

My beloved husband died aged 62 of an aortic aneurysm and now my son aged 44 has died of the same thing almost 5 weeks ago. I’m finding it hard at the moment but I know about the grieving process although at the moment I’m in that dark hole. I have two surviving sons, both younger, and I’m so worried that I’ll lose them too. They will be having checkups but I’m so scared. I don’t think I can take anymore.
