Maybe it's just your body's way of handling things.
I know if you were around me in a similar situation, it would be a great
relief to have a funny statement/story.
I'm always much better at the time something happens, it's only later
I might "fall apart" and I think that's okay.

I have to agree with Far on this one. You knew what had to be done and jumped in, a reaction thing.

Everyone has different gifts to share.
Your gift is a strength which creates a safe harbor for their souls to grieve. I would be so thankful to have someone like you with me during such a trying time.
When you may one day need such support, your needs will be probablly be satisfied by another, such as yourself, who will be there for you in a way that you need them to be.

When my Dad died I was heartbroken...but I never cried once. When my mum died 20 years later I couldn't stop crying for a week.

Everyone acts in their own way to grief and this can differ from time to time.

When my first husband was alive he was my rock and I didn't need to be strong because he was the shoulder for me to lean on or cry on.
When he passed away things changed. He passed on all his strength to me. I didn't cry at his funeral, but was strong for my 2 children & the one that I was carrying. I had to be strong for his mother & sister. This was 10 years ago. My brother died 8 years ago but I also didn't cry then. My father passed away 6 years ago and I had to be strong for my mother & sister.
Now this seems like I'm not emotional but I am. When I see a certain film or hear a certain piece of music I will start blubbering away. When I think of my hubby on my own I will cry until I'm satiated. I don't cry easily in front of people because deep down inside me I have to be strong for my children & my second hubby. I know that when my mother passes away (hopefully not for a long time yet - she's 85) I know I will have to be strong for my sister & my hubby because he loves my mum to bits.
Everyone deals with the passing of someone in their own way. Not everyone breaks down or throws themselves on the floor. Don't worry. Your grief will come when you least expect it but don't hide it, let it flow naturally.
Love, light & blessings

I really hope that doesn't mean what i think it means.
This is not the place for jokes.
