I frequently have to intervene with my team on their desire to do more than what we typically do, partly because It will set a precedence, but mainly because they are trying to find ways to cope with their own grief through giving me. Until you can come to terms with your feelings about the situation, nothing else that you can do for the dead or the survivors will help.
It'* almost like an intervention that I do...lot'* of man hugs, talk and a few beers.
