Sorry for your loss. As mine age I think more and more about their impact on my life and how I'll react. I had a few friends pass while we were overseas and it can be difficult at times. Focus on the good times you had together.
I'll most likely be picking it up, either tomorrow or the next day, depending on how long the bank decides to take processing my deposit. Also there is no need to really bother with mods, when GTA 5 has it's online mode.
