I find coping with the death of a loved one, I change depending on how close I was to them, or their close family. A couple of years ago two of my great aunts died within two weeks of one another. I cried like mad at the first one, because I felt guilty, this old woman had no one, except my dad, me and my sister, who went to see her every other weekend, and I hadn't been going lately, I never got to say goodbye, and it hurt so much. My other aunt, I didn't cry, because her daughter was so upset, I felt like I had to be strong for her.

I guess what I'm wanting to know, is how you deal with grief, and if your grief changes depending on the circumstances. Personally, I find tears, and reminiscing about happy memories the best. I loved hearing stories about my grandparents, or great aunts before I was born, because it was a different person to the one I knew.

I think Grief is a different process for everyone, but you are correct, little things help.
