Know that it's ok to be sad and let your guard down. You need to grieve too.

You are all so fantastic. i don't even know any of you if I were to bump into you on the street but it is amazing that I feel like I can come here and find support. You have all been so kind.
Tonight was the wake and it was so sad but amazing in a way. So many of my family were sad and hugged me saying that we have to stop meeting like this and that they can't wait for our wedding so that we have a reason for a joyous occasion to attend to rather than a sad one. that made me feel good.
On the other hand it is soooo difficult to see a grown man, especially your father, break down into tears. Sometimes you just don't know what to do.
Burying my Aunt on of all days 9-11 will be hard, and I feel blessed to see that I have a very large family that can find support in each other. Although it makes me open my eyes and see that i have to stop living this life in a rat race and to stop and smell the roses. Shame that situations like these make us realize this.
My FI doesn't know what to say / do. He has been so supportive yet he feels so awkward... She was just way too young... I think of loosing one of my parents now and I can't imagine.
Again thank you - and I know that she is with my grandmother and she is an angel for all of us.
