How do you deal with death?

I got a phone call tonight from my mom. She was letting me know that a friend of mine had died, but she didn't realize when she was telling me how much I cared about this person. We dated a couple of times after his mission but nothing really came of it but we did maintain a friendship. His name was Jeff. He was going to be 29 in November. He died of cancer, I'm not sure what kind. Even though we've not been in touch in several years, it still hurts very much. I don't know how to deal very well with death except cry a lot and be depressed for a long time. His funeral is tomorrow, I wish I could go. I need the closure.
