Interviewed 21 farm families following fatal accident. Identified factors involved in bereaved family members becoming more distant from one another: blaming and fear of blame; economic crisis when farm operator is killed; family differences over expression of feelings; preoccupation and emotional flatness of bereavement; and role of kinship beliefs and attitudes in producing distance among bereaved in-laws.
