Memory replay

I lost my mum on boxing day, very suddenly. She was only 63 years old and we were not expecting it at all. I was with her for her last few hours and I can’t stop replaying every moment. It was a very harrowing 12 hours where she was unconscious but not at peace. I keep replaying this in my head and it comes back with a thud every few days. I don’t know how to stop this.
