We are all different, and so are our relationships with the people closest to us. Responses are likely to range all over the place.

Don't be surprised if people try to avoid the topic:  "Oh, goodness. We don't even want to think about that. You should be thinking positive."

Some people may be even more adamant and try to refuse to talk. It's their choice if they choose to leave. Talk to whomever remains, even if it's just one person.
