I'm sorry for your loss of Winter. :hug:

You need to spend your time right now doing everything you can to help Summer through her mourning period. Sit next to her cage and sing, read and talk to her. Give her as much TLC as you possibly can.
Summer is sad and depressed and right now she's depending on you for your understanding and support.

Just like people, it is going to take Summer time before she starts feeling better again. You may want to consider getting her another friend in a month or so. If you do, please be sure to quarantine it for a minimum of 45 days.

Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room where your current bird(s) are housed.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.

Best wishes.
