Re: Sayings that you hate now

I have just finished reading the novel Petrified by Barbara Nadel. It is a detective novel set in Turkey. Twice during the course of the novel it mentions that the standard response to hearing that someone has lost a family member is to say "May your head be alive". I am trying to work out what this means - is it talking about the memories of the person, or is saying that at least the bereaved is still alive?
