My sincere condolences for the loss of your Mother. The bible calls death an enemy and when it takes those we love, it truly is.
God will remember our dead loved ones and will bring them back to life on earth so they can enjoy living forever in peace. Jo 5:28,29 Ps 37:11,29.
Imagine the day when there are no more tears of sorrow and death and pain are gone forever. Rev 21:3,4.
I hope these promises will bring you comfort.
