Hi:
When my wife passed away, almost 3 years ago, I also was AWOL. What kind of husband goes to work on the day his wife dies? I was with her, and looked after her for all but 5 days out of the previous 4 years... but that still that wasn't enough for some people.
I took comfort in two things. One, I know that I was there when she needed me most.
The second is something my Dad told me. He told me to have confidence in my choices, and that those people who seem to care about what I do, don't really matter... and that the people that matter most to me don't really care.
Whether or not you broke down at your mom's funeral is a very personal thing and really nobody's business except yours... just as you know that you were there for your mom when she needed you most...

Take Care, carry on...
