To be honest, this was an area I have struggled with from the beginning. But the more I thought about how I would want to be treated, the more I realized how important it is to have more grace for those who say (or will say) silly things.
Let it be said: most people will not know how to react when you talk about your loss. They will try to understand and some will probably be better than others, but I've found that more times than not, talking about death makes people really uncomfortable and makes them say silly things. But remembering that they are human, just like you, means they deserve grace as well!
