May the good Lord bless and keep you and help you know that she is now with the angels. As Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote:

“Peace, peace! she is not dead, she doth not sleep-

she hath awakened from the dream of life-

‘Tis we, who lost in stormy visions, keep

With phantoms an unprofitable strife,

And in mad trance, strike with our spirit’s knife

Invulnerable nothings.”

Know that I wish I could be there with you.
