YES! After someone dies, it is a good idea to let as many people know as possible, especially close relatives and friends. While it is painful to make these calls, it is much better to tell people than to have them find out later from third parties. People want to help you and your family grieve and they want to feel included. I recommend that you take your Mom's address book and have someone call everyone in the book. It is better for people to know, and soon, than to have them left in the dark.
