Grief at 6 months

I know I haven’t been through as hard as some people have here, but I lost my Grandmother 6 months ago, I am 35, she was 93 and she was like a mother to me. We spoke most days my whole life and I miss her so much. I find that my grief has got harder rather than easier and for some reason this month has been so triggering for me. Her funeral was in August but we are burying her ashes in February with a small family ceremony and I find the finality of that so much harder. I know she lived a long life and I know also that she is with me in thought, everyone l tells me both of these things but I just miss walking through her door, seeing her, hugging her and chatting, holding her hand, her funny comments and wise advice. Does anyone else find 6 months difficult?
