So much harder this time

I lost my dad 3 years ago. Just as covid pandemic hit. I wasn’t really involved in arranging the funeral as my mum and brother did everything. I think that was part choice as I tend to shut those painful feelings away. The funeral was a blur. We were only allowed 5 people there. I miss him everyday.
I lost my mum 2 weeks ago. Unexpectedly although she was in hospital. We were told she was coming home. I just feel in a blur. Fuzzy. Trying to stay strong for my kids. Still working, but want to run and hide. I have to face the celebrant to arrange for her funeral on Wednesday. I don’t know where to start with the memories. What I’m trying to say is that losing my mum is so much harder.
