Grief: Go thru the grief stages (shock - denial - anger - bargaining - depression - acceptance ) & seek support from family & friends. Also, might consider grief work thru supportive counseling with a therapist.

Pastoral counseling: Or a grief counselor. At times like this there is no way to avoid asking ultimate questions. Dealing with these questions becomes important whether you are an atheist or believer. Grief is like having part of you inner self amputated. If it's a spouse you go from living as a twosome to being on your lonesome. It can be devastating. Each religion has developed its own specialists to help deal with this.

This is a tough one!: Grief has its own time table. Don't try to avoid it, because it just seems to find us somehow. My best advice would include: 1) taking as good care of yourself as you can, 2) do anything legal that provides you comfort, 3) write, 4) cry when you need to. Remember that you will love the person who has died for the rest of your life - even if other people do come along. Be gentle with yourself.
