Hello Anon

Thank you for writing and I'm very sorry for your loss.

Can you tell us more about your mother and how she is not coping? The first weeks after a death can be very sad but quite busy - it's only after the phones and emails and cards have stopped coming that depression or an inability to cope sets in. The most important thing is to encourage your mother to talk about how she feels and to be there for her. What's going on currently?
