In the same cold way they deal with everything.

I react coldly as in I feel nothing. When my cousin died in the same city that I live in I felt nothing I couldn't even feel sorry for my Aunt and relatives. It was difficult to hide this from everyone. When my mother was dying I was terribly conflicted and felt compelled to try and find authenticity until the end. I did the right thing but authentic? Sad to admit that even then I can't say I found it..authentic for me means the self unconnected from other people and even then its nebulous.

I can't answer this for you. But perhaps you may find at least part of your answer in this article from PC's archives:

I usually just get sad for a few hours and maybe a day or two at max (which is was how I was when my cat died) before moving on with my life. No point in grieving anyways.
Character is like a tree and reputation its shadow. The shadow is what we think it is and the tree is the real thing.
