My grandmother just passed away. I cried. Yes, it is ok... Even for men to cry. However, we cry because we will miss them and sad they are gone. My grandmother was a Christian and I know I will see her again one day. I didn't cry for her, because I knew she was happy in heaven. I cried for myself for the pain of losing a woman I love.
Yes! When my father died six years ago, i thought that i should not cry but after i cried my eyes out for a few years. And when my brother died a year ago, i screamed and cried at his funeral. I am one of these people who think that if i cry then i am weak. well...Crying is normal when someone dies!
