This question is morbid and hypothetical

My family and I are not good at dealing with deaths. I have no outward reaction (I am really bad at sympathy, but I do try) and my mother tends to scream at me for not loving the person who died so why should I care anyway.

In the past year my family has basically fallen apart and half of us don't talk to each other anymore. I was wondering what would happen if one of them died.

How do you react when you hear of an estranged relative's death from another relative of theirs who may or may not also be estranged to them? I guess "I'm sorry" or "that's too bad". But if I said one of those I would probably get an earful for not being sincere.
