My sister died

My sister died suddenly in August, she was recieving chemo, for aml, and two days prior to her death she was told she was in remission, of course we were all so excited, just another round of chemo, to keep the cancer at bay, to achieve the goal, later were informed she died over night.
I just can’t find away thought, she wasn’t just my sister she was my best friend I didn’t even get to say goodbye, she’s left 7 beautiful children behind who I should be focusing on, but everything just makes me so sad. The children make me miss her more, and missing her makes me feels so alone, I want to find away through the dark days, but every emotion just brings tears, I miss her every second of the day
