Father: Can't you just try sharing a room with your sister? Your mom was always so good at this stuff. I'd come home from work and everything was always perfect. How would mom have handled this?

Daughter: She would have caught me before I moved into the garage. Mom knew everything I did before I did it.

Father: What is it honey?

Daughter: It is just not fair. First, I lose my mom! Then grandma leaves. Now even I lose my own room.

Father: I know how much you girls miss your mother. Because I miss her too. Very much. But you still got me.

1) I don't understand the use of "would" in the italic part.

2) Is the following implied from the bold part? How would mom have handled this if she had been alive
