Kirk deserved better. Yes, he dies alone, but there is zero sense of mourning. Just another day at the office for Picard.

But why would Picard mourn him? He didn't know Kirk any better than a random redshirt (Kirk is my favorite character). What confused me was that they didn't seem to give a shit that the Enterprise was destroyed.
Kirk's dead, the Enterprise itself is gone... and Picard and Riker crack a couple jokes. It's amazing.
There's a great joke in the ruined Enterprise-D bridge scene:
Riker: "I always thought I'd have a shot at this [captain's] chair" (or something like that)
Picard: <rips the Captain's chair out of the floor and hands it to Riker>
