LifeCycle Events: Death, Burial, and Bereavement: Mourning for Grandparents:
Are we forbidden to mourn for our grandparents?
We are not supposed to mourn excessively, but this doesn't mean not
being sad; it means that the specific laws of mourning, which forbid
certain things for 7 or 30 days (or longer, for a parent) shouldn't
be prolonged beyond those periods of time. Similarly, we don't mourn
for a grandparent in the sense that we don't keep the 7 and 30 days,
but we can certainly express our sadness at the loss of grandparents
in any way that makes us feel better about it.
