Do you find emoticons incredibly insensitive to use in serious situations?

I just told my little bro that Husband and I have to put our 16 year old cat to sleep tomorrow and he just gave me a :( over IM.  I kinda want to smack him.  Am I being too sensitive? (It's totally OK if I am.  I need to get my shit together, I haven't stopped sobbing for about 3 hours).

ETA: Thanks, guys.  I know he didn't mean it to be a dick, I'm sure he just didn't know what else to say.  I'm a little prickly right now, that's all.
