Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It sounds real and natural, so given the event, it will be helpful for everyone.  If very recent survivors attend, they will be hard pressed to concentrate throughout, but they will be touched by a particular phrase, or other and that's natural.

As you mention, I also consider that shock and guilt are steps in the grieving process, which we recycle sometimes by the hour, during the worst parts.  It seems impossible to see a particular stage as you go through it, until several years later.  

You are doing a good thing, very well!  

Our knowledge has surpassed our wisdom. -Charu Saxena.
