Truly sorry for such a loss. May you find strength, and help from others.

Just to add, this is my second time around with widowhood. At least this time I don't have a 8 year old boy to raise.

I'm so sorry Maggie, my condolences. My learned advice if someone asks how they can help: Tell them not to forget you after the smoke clears, and to bring food.

That's me exactly, just wanted to vegetate.

Do you have any close friends to provide company, comfort, help, and gentle prodding?

I'm so sorry for your lose. You do NOT have to do everything today. Most of those things can be done over a period of days or weeks. When a close friend or family member asks if they can help, let them deal with some of these things. It can be overwhelming without any help. Remember to take care of yourself. If you want to spend a day in bed crying, do it! If you want to take a day and sit by the shore, do it!
