Micky, You know no matter what plan you chose, life goes on and it is going to bring things that make losing weight seem like a lower priority for a time, like this sad event. Of course losing weight takes a back seat, but only for a time. Just get back on plan, as soon as you can manage it. Take off can be a good tool if you are finding a lack of focus... or major carb cravings.... if you find you can not stay back on plan, then a TO is in order...
Sorry for your loss, and know that you have what it takes to make a change in your life, even when things go wrong.
