My gramdpa died this past Thursday, and my mom this past May. So my condolences and my empathy goes out to you.
As for riding after such news, if it helps do it. Just keep in mind you might not be 100% focused so when rising please don't take this time to push your limits, ride to ride .... Do it safely bro!
FYI: I am riding even with my mon and gramdpa passing. It helps me. I just ride at a peaceful speed. Cruising speed.
