Oh dear, I am so sorry your Mom also passed away. That's a lot for you to have to bear.
Somehow we get through it all. In my experince the first whole year is the hardest, especially the first birthday, the first anniversary, Mother's Day, Christmas etc. Then it becomes easier. You never forget the loved one, but your life takes other directions.
You remain in my prayers!

I am sorry you lost your mother as well as Betsy but I like to think that one has to pass first so that it smoothes the way for the other to come through.
My prayers are with you and your daughter during this difficult time. She may cling towards you more because she's going to internalize - "what will happen to me if something happens to my dad too".
Comfort her and support her and let her know you will be there I had to literally push my son back into life again after his dad's passing because he was so scared that something would happen to me as well.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter Ken. You have lost so much so quicly. I hope that you and your daughter take the time to rest and recover. There will be good times in the future for you both. Take the time to celebrate the lives of two of the three most important ladies in your life and hold up the one important lady, your daughter, that is now with you. She will be what holds you up...
May God's peace surround you and your daughter. This is a tough time for you two. I know how hard it is. I lost my father and then my mother in a five week span, so I know how hard it is to deal with it one after another. Give yourself time to grieve and to heal...
