Huge hugs! I'm sorry you've been faced with some inconsiderate people. Your feelings are legit. He's your brother, thats a close bond and to have that broken by death is hard. Forget what those others say, and remember that you need to grieve the loss of your brother, your friend, and your nephew's dad. Its not easy when you love someone and they die.. especially way too young.

I think the best thing to do is take it a day at a time, cry when you need, share stories when you can, and remember this is your journey and only you can move at the pace you are ready for and on your time. You won't "get over it" you get through it. It will always be something you carry with you.

Also check in your community for grief groups, or even call hospice. They often have grief groups for siblings too. And come here and share. We may not share the same type of loss, but someone around here may and if not we can empathize with the feelings associated with losing a loved one. HUGS to you!
