What is the proper thing to do when someone dies?

There isn't a service.  My father-in-law died yesterday morning.  I'm just supposed to go to the family's house and spend the day with them.

Am I supposed to bring something over there?  I feel like I shouldn't go empty handed.

Do I hug these people when I arrive?  In my experience, when someone hugged me, it just made me cry.

I don't have a good relationship with my spouses family, so I'd like not to wreck it.

How did you react when someone in your SO family died?  My husband was not particularly close to his stepdad, so he's taking it pretty well.  I however keep crying.  Which makes me even more nervous to go over there.
