How to help my children grieve over the loss of our immediate family members...

I am a single mother of three boys. My oldest is 15, middle is. 9 and baby is 3. In November 2011 I lost my father whom we lived with to serosicis of the liver. He passed away here in the home in my arms. Then January of 2012 my children's father made a poor choice ending up in a accident resulting in him now being blind. My 15 year old found his father barely alive. In October of 2012, my 9 year old was hiking with his life long best friend when an avalanche occurred striking her in the head killing her right before my sons eyes. In November we lost my grandmother to Alzheimer's. in December my grandfather to heart failure, and tragically in January 2013. We lost my angel whom meant everything to us, my mom. She had a stroke causing her to bleed out. In making the decision to remove her from life support. She fought it for 24 hours making me feel like I actually killed her, I am a single mother, an only child myself and I feel like I am so alone. I miss them all so much, and sadly my mother was brain dead before she reached the hospital I could not even say goodbye. I am desperate for advice to keeps hope alive, but I am really having a hard time. Most importantly are making sure my children are ok but they are all grieving in there own ways. I have to live for my kids and now for the ones who lived for me,
