Re: My FIL died...... how much does one need to bereave?
Unless he was very close to his father, this won't really change anything. Life goes on normally for most people after a family death, unless they were very close. Just be kind and ready to be supportive for a few weeks, but don't impose your thoughts and feelings on him - let his tone set yours.
Love is an ideal thing; marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
