Just spend time with your family, let yourself grieve, look at pictures, listen to sad songs, share memories, whatever you feel you need to do at this difficult time.

@Laurenplusalex:  I’m so sorry for your loss. 

No one knows “how to do this” and honestly each time it’s a little different.  Though there maybe certain ways you personally deal with it.  I’m a very private person, but have some close friends and at first I really need them to just be around as support, then before too long it’s just something I deal with in private.  I’ll basically wallow in it in my free time to work it out of my system (but still doing what’s needed, not getting depressed or anything, keeping up with myself, work, etc).  Eventually it’s just happy memories and the once in a while “I miss X” or “X would have loved this” type thoughts.

But that’s me and people deal with loss differently.  There lots of ways that are healthy to deal with it.  As long as you aren’t hurting yourself or anyone else and you’re dealing with it (even a bit at a time), it’s ok.  It is a bad time and it hurts, but it’s ok that you hurt, are sad, get angry at the loss, etc.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

Nobody really knows how to “do this”, you deal with it one step at a time. If I may offer a word of advice though (as someone who has dealt with loss before), don’t try to put on a brave face, it only makes things worse. Let yourself be sad, let yourself cry and grieve as much and as long as you need. And surround yourself with people you love for emotional support, that’s what family and friends are for. 

I’ll say a little prayer for you and your grandpa.

@Laurenplusalex:  I’m so sorry for your loss. There’s no right way to get through this; do what feels okay, accept whatever you’re feeling and know that other people have felt it before, hug your loved ones, remember.
