How do I get through this.

My brother passed in April this year after 6 months suffering with Motor neurone Disease at the age of 57.
My father then passed 21 days later with terminal cancer. They both lived together and I was left to cope with their funerals and affairs. My brother and mother have stopped talking to me due to some of the wishes in the Will of my brother.
My husband and children have been amazing, but I’m really struggling to understand why I lost two people so close to me at the same time.
