You've just lost her, so don't expect to feel fine or even normal for awhile.
I will tell you to stay busy though, because sitting around thinking
about her loss is the worst thing you can do.
It's OKAY for you to cry and be unhappy, so don't think you have to put on a brave face all the time for everyone, and don't let anyone tell you differently.
I had my bracelet made in September 2007. It took me two months to be able to let go and trust someone else with his hair. It was the last, physical part of him I had, and it was difficult for me to put that hair in the mail and trust it to a stranger.
I'm only telling you this last part in case that happens to you. It's perfectly normal, and you're not 'weird' if you have trouble trusting someone else with your girl's hair.
Only those who have lived it know what you're going through. I'm so very sorry for your loss, and wish no one ever had to go through it.
