Jewish funeral issue

In my community we have an organization of shomrim whose only function is to sit with the dead between the time they die and when they are buried. I am part of this organization and have been for years.

My college age child died Tuesday and will be arriving at the funeral home here in a few hours with burial scheduled Monday morning and almost none of the shomrim shifts for my child are filled. I don’t know what to do. Do I plan on sitting with my child the next two nights at the funeral home?

I’m a little bit hurt that after years of sitting with strangers my fellow shomers will not sit for me. It’s all so baffling.

Ideas? Thoughts? Anything?
