It is almost always difficult to accept the death of a loved one. Those left behind ask why it happened to them and to people they loved so much. Learning to accept death as a natural occurrence or an unavoidable part of life is one of the hardest adjustments the family has to undergo.
Death in the family becomes a time for more understanding loving, supporting, and comforting. The strengthened bond between family members makes grief easier to handle and helps to point out that there is a whole lot more to live for.
