What do I get them?

My Grandpa passed away this morning, it's been really hard this past week on us all since he fell ill. My family is super close and this is the first death in our family for someone this close. I'm thinking about blowing up a picture of my grandparents with my 5 month old and framing it, one for my dad and one for my Grandma. Am I supposed to get something for all my aunts and uncles? If so, what?

I wouldn't say you have to get anybody anything. My grandfather just passed away and the family being together was enough. Lots of hugs.

Im sorry for your loss.I agree with pp. When my dad died we didnt give each other anything we were just there for each other and that was enough for my mom and grandma. Hugs.

 I don't think you are "supposed" to get anything for anyone.  If you want to that would be very sweet.  Also, maybe something to do for your grandma or dad specifically...when my neighbors father passed she cut out the personal writings from the sympathy cards she got and made a huge collage with a pic of her dad in the center.  It is amazing touching.  I tear up every time I read it.
