How do you deal with a death in the family

A lot of people deal with death in a different manner. Some will try to lighten up the mood by cracking jokes, some others rather just be left alone so they can grieve, ect.

What about you?

There's no blueprint on how to deal with tragedies of any kind. Some joke, some mourn, some eat, some go out in nature. Me I prefer to joke.. even if it doesn't seem appropriate.

To be honest, I don't know what I could answer. The last close relative I lost was my maternal grandfather in 1987 and I was only 6 years old. I've been extremely lucky to still have almost all of my close family members still alive. But like Bourne said, there's no right way or wrong way to deal with this. You cope with it however you can.

There is no one answer to this. I think people deal with it in different ways. I personally like to be left alone at first mainly because if they were a close family member I can't talk about them without crying.

We try to celebrate the person. Their life, their effect on us and all the things we love or what drove us nuts about them. There is usually laughter, there are usually tears.
