The internet is filled with confessions from snarky bloggers who now regret the comments they made about Smith.
Thats natural according to Roger Friedman, a co-author of the Grief Recovery Handbook (Harper Collins).
He says people who feel guilty about a death usually wish they could have done more things for the deceased or did them differently or better.
In the case of family member, Friedman recommends making a public apology to folks who knew the deceased. He admits thats hard to do in the case of a celebrity.
But there is a way to heal the pain caused by Smiths death.
Friedman suggests holding an Anna Nicole wake with friends and family and either look at her old Playboy spreads or watch tapes of her old reality show.
He suggests a moment to acknowledge that while Smith made herself into the image of a buffoon, she was a real person who suffered from very tragic events in her life but still used what she was given to the utmost.
