Betty, my heart and prayers go out to you (and ALL of your family) in the passing of your Mom.

The good news is that as Christians, you "will" see her again as Scripture says. You have not lost her forever. She's just in a different location for a while (and the same with David's Mom). But y'all know that!

May The Holy Spirt of God Comfort all of y'all, give you His Peace, and help y'all as you "go through" this time of missing your Mom. May He remind you that your Mom is with Him, doing well and no longer suffering.
