Well, hell, of course you would be. With three major emotional events
connected to your mother's death in a short period of time, it's
understandable that feelings of grief would re-emerge.
With me, it was the time my sister, the administratrix of my parents'
estate, distributed the final payments. It was like the final
acknowledgement that they were gone.
