My riding mate got wiped out by a car 3 years ago, I sold everything except my riding gear. a year and a half later after losing another friend to cancer I decided it was futile denying what I enjoyed most, and as someone pointed out to me recently, I've lost more friends from cancer than bikes and I'm only young at 53.
I also express my condolences for you, it is hard to take, so just have a break, think about it for a while and weigh up your feelings. Just sit back, park the bike in the corner out of view, help your friends family get back on their feet and down the track work out what you want to do.
You will never lose that itch to get back in the saddle again (un)fortunately.
