Death is difficult, if not impossible, to deal with, and I’m not sure that you ever “get over” losing a loved one--nor do I profess to have experience in it. What I do have experience in is character death.
Playing tabletop role playing games (or TTRPGS), it’s inevitable that characters die. After all, they’re adventurers, or supernatural creatures, or superheroes, or some combination of those (depending on what system you’re playing). It’s normal that they’d burn bright and then die quickly, but that doesn’t make it easier.
