How Do You Cope When Patients Die?

I have been fortunate in that I have got to my second year of training and none of the patients I have worked with have died.
But this week so far three have died! I have to admit I'm finding this really hard to cope with :(
I work in mental health nursing so the deaths weren't exactly natural either.
The three that died also happen to be three that I became very close to.
Everytime I see their name it brings me to tears and I'm feeling a bit silly now!

Has any other student experienced this during their training??
