A person is away on a study abroad trip. While they are away, a close family member of theirs dies. Do you tell them right away, or do you wait until they get back?

I wouldn't hesitate to tell them right away; they have a right to know. Besides, it's not such a big world anymore; there's a chance they could find out somehow, like looking at a news site local to the family member & finding an obituary.
