I can't blame you for going a bit gooey, i think it's pretty natural to get depressed, then angry after losing people you're close to. I've been
rather lucky in life so far and haven't lost any really close friends or family even though i'm hitting middle age so i can only imagine how
horrible it is. I guess the other posters are on the money when they say best to remember the good times and be thankfull for the way these
relationships have brought a bit of light into ones life.
Friends are important, I moved cities a year or so ago and my old friends, even though they're about 100 miles away have helped me stay sane in
trying times. I'm glad i live in the times of skype and the internet as it does make staying in touch a lot easier. Does seem harder to make friends
as you get older and crotchety so the old ones do get more important.
Anyways good luck with the funeral, i like the Irish way of doing wakes, it's a good way to send people off, though the hangover can be a bit nasty
