Losing a loved one unexpectedly is absolutely a tragic experience. Motor vehicle collisions are a common source of sudden losses. You may have unresolved issues, such as having had a negative last interaction with your loved one. Worse, you have to somehow adjust to a future without someone you cared for and depended on for much of your life. When a death happens suddenly, it can lead to overwhelming grief. It may be all that you can handle to simply make arrangements for a memorial service or funeral.
