My dad passed away Friday night.

I lost my grandma when I was age 9.
She lost the battle to breast cancer.
I was a young kid and didn't know how to deal with my emotions.
I didn't cry while she was fighting her battle.
My mother did every day.
My brother cried also.
My Mom didn't understand me.
I guess I needed to really process the information because I never had a lost before and didn't really know the extent of the devastating news until I saw that she passed.
It was on her funeral day that I burst out into tears and cried.
Seeing her in her casket (not looking anything like herself) broke my heart.
I wasn't allowed to see her while she was in the hospital fighting for her life.
The last time I saw her was when I was age 6 (only having vague memories of her before hand).0

I'm sorry for your loss.
The last relative I lost was my uncle. He died 2,5 years ago. But honestly, I wasn't too sad. Of course I was a bit shocked about his death but he had been a heavy alcoholic for his whole life, so it was not a big surprise that he ended up dying quite young. He died of a liver failure, which is a very typical cause of death for alcoholics (ironically, he died while on vacation and it was the first vacation he had taken in over 25 years). He was a nice person in general and he had always been kind to me and my siblings but he was super, super religious and he also had some quite severe mental issues (caused from his lifelong alcohol abuse), so nobody of our family was very close to him.0
