So sorry to hear about your loss.
I'd love to say it gets easier but I'm afraid that depends on what you do.
I struggle daily but have found few things that help.
Big hugs and prayers are with you.

Our youngest was 20 when he completely unexpectedly committed suicide. Needless to say we were shocked. We were pressured into having a memorial for him and hundreds of people showed up despite a severe snowstorm that day. I was talking to my uncle and cousin who both lost children about the loss. My uncle said his 20 year old son's death was a severe scar for about 5 years then 10 years he was OK with the loss. He didn't like it but.... My cousin had a bit of moisture in his eye and said he spends a lot of time in cemeteries and he didn't think he would ever be at peace with the loss of his 17 year old.

[@11509,Keepitsimple] Life goes on and the family gets together every year at his graveside to celebrate his birthday and joke about the character that he was.
