This link is a valuable tool for grief resources and the groups which meet are very effective in facilitating a healthy response through grief. Highly recommended. There is a daily email to sign up for which has a short encouragement through the stages. Good to sign up for yourself as well as your mother. Groups meet all over the world and the workbook has tons of authors listed. Lord have mercy on your family.

This book has helped me a lot. Small chapters written by a variety of faith based people giving personal experience. Saturated in Psalms. Compiled by a missionary who lost her twin sister as a child. My Grief Share instructors are parents of these twins.
God be with you both as you rest in God’s strength.
