Yes, I believe that grieving before someone pass does help. Of course it has to be a circumstance where you know someone is dying, not something sudden or unexpected. My father was diagnosed with cancer and it was about 2 years later that he died. We also knew he was close to death for days when he was hospitalized at the end. I grieved ahead of time and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be once he did die. Now I had a brother that commited suicide and my mother died quickly after an injury in a nursing home. Both of those were situations that there was no time to grieve ahead of time.
