You are not silly, you are still grieving. I adopt old cats, most thrown away by uncaring people because they decide the cat just doesn't "fit" in to their lives anymore. We found Sam, a beautiful silver persian when he was 12 and had him only 4 1/2 years. He died knowing he was wanted, treasured and so loved. I still cry when I think of him and it's been a year since his passing. The dates are a terrible coincidence for you. Schedule something wonderful on the 17th - visit a kennel or rescue org. Donate your time that day. Do SOMETHING positive and that day will pass like 99% of the other January 17ths you've had!!
