Fear of relatives' death and mindfulness?

I am 22 and fortunately, I have never experienced the death of any close relative so far. However, I often find myself thinking about how devastated I would be by the death of a relative and I deeply fear the moment when it will happen. I am rather healthy and happy with my life but I can't stop having these "gloomy" thoughts. I have started Headspace in September 2014 and practise regularly since then; it has helped me since I can more easily take a step back and breathe when problems arise but I just don't manage to apply mindfulness when it comes to this topic: death of relatives. Do I need more mindfulness practise? Or a different approach?
Thank you very much,
