Hi Jenny, I'm sorry for your situation.
Yes, Delta does offer bereavement fares in cases where a family member is involved. Bereavement fares are often, but not always less expensive than normal published fares but do not have fees or penalties involved for changes you might make to your travel plans. You will need to contact Delta reservations at 800 221 1212 and they can see which option is better for you,. Be prepared to provide the name of the funeral home/mortuary and a few other details if purchasing a bereavement fare as your eligibility is verified.
Thanks for flying Delta and I'm sorry for your loss.l
