Just a few thoughts. Belief systems can indeed bring comfort - but often in practice bring much less comfort than one expected, and this can lead to a crisis of faith, or great mitterness. Great little book by CS Lewis, called A Grief Observed, that explores this wonderfully.
There are always opportunities for Survivor Guilt - because nomatter how much you did, its always possible to imagine something more you might have done, even though in practice it might not have been possible or even helpful. We need to learn to forgive ourselves.
Fear of dying is often surprisingly close to fear of living - rather than puzzling about whether there is life after death, one needs to face the question of whether there is life BEFORE death - and concentrate on finding how to live properly right now.
