Is it weird that I've never mourned a death?

I have a very strong sense of empathy and compassion for the living but death just doesn't bother me. Even pets I've had that died didn't even make me frown.

In addition, I've also noticed that I don't seem to create the friendships that others seem to have. I have a lot of friends but none that I would call a best friend. Perhaps being thrown out of my house as a child so much and attending 9 schools in 12 years, then being in the Navy where people come and go like customers in a gas station has affected me psychologically. Aside from my wife and child, will I ever be able to have the kind of relationship with someone that just crushes me when they die? And if so, would that necessarily be a good thing?

I'm not alone!
My really close aunt died long ago. I didn't cry or feel even remotely sad about it. I was just quiet and shrugged my shoulder while my mother and and my other aunt cried.
Micheal Jackson died. Nothing.
Whitney Houston died. Nothing.
I mean no fucking sympathy! I was starting to think I am not human!
I am reserved though I can be a loudmouth around my friends.
It takes me 1 or 2 weeks to finally talk to someone. As you can see I am very socially awkward.

I wonder what causes us to be different. I'm a gentleman but certainly not reserved. And I'm very socially apt. But something about us just doesn't click when someone dies. It's like a broken light switch or something.
