Losing my great nanny

We lost my great nanny on Friday evening, she was 101 years old! We sadly lost my great grandad last May and I thought I had prepared myself for her loss but it feels like I don’t know what to feel, it keeps going round in my head that I was meant to visit her this week coming and now she’s gone! She was married to my grandad for 82 years together for 83! They both had truly amazing lives, never argued, smiled all the time! But now it almost feels like I don’t know what to do with my grief , I lost my dog in January and I really struggled with her loss as she was so close to me and I feel the same with my Great Nanny and Grandad :((
