Counting Shloshim after Chol Ha-Moed

If a person buried his father on the second day of pesach, and shiva did not start untill a few days later (on Shabbos) when is shloshim calculated from, and when are the 12 months finished?
Thanks.

Answer:

The thirty days of aveilus (shloshim) are counted from the day of burial, and not from the day on which the shiva begins.

The twelve months are counted from the day of the niftar’s passing.

Best wishes and besoros tovos.
