I have never lost a husband but I am the mother of a 24 year old daughter and I can tell you the worst pain I've ever felt was when my daughter and I weren't speaking. It didn't last long but it hurts bad. If you can, please make an effort to tell her you love her. You say you were close once, you can be again. And you both need that.
I'm so sorry for your loss, too.
