In brief: You can be sad

Allow yourself to grieve.
You need to allow yourself the liberty and time to feel sad about your loss before you can move on. This is a normal stage of mourning.

In brief: Give yourself time

No easy answer for a loss such as this.
Allow yourself to grieve, but get support from someone to do this. It may be your significant other, a family member, clergy a close friend. You have lost a part of yourself - give yourself time, have faith and hope that things happen for a reason. It may not be clear right now why you, but you will get through this.
