Abstract
The current study looks into the emotional process of mourning especially the way of dealing with it among employees who have lost their colleagues in unexpected events. The study was of qualitative type in which seven employees working in district of Isfahan Education office were interviewed using semi-structured interview method with open questions. These participants were selected through purposive/theoretical sampling procedure until saturation point. To analyze data, content analysis of interviews, cyclical analysis method, and development and extension of themes as well as merging them by paradigm were utilized. The study eventually revealed that the participants cope with the issue of their colleague’s death in different ways especially referring to fate and destiny, God’s wisdom, praying, and charity giving. However, many of the participants had not accepted the issue of death yet. This, in turn, implies differences in the participants’ views toward life and also differences in their experiences
