Anyone whose had a dog knows that other creatures have emotions. however animals do have short memories, and foget the death of a member of thier group fairly easily.
I wouldn't surprise me if apes had similar physical reactions to the death of a loved one like we do, but I will say that I believe it is impossible for them to contemplate the meaning of death as we do. While they do have material brains similar to ours, that does not mean that they have minds like ours.
Yes, that's why I have no problem with the idea of evolution. Obviously human beings started out as simply another variety of animal, til God stepped in and ... changed them. When we see how animals deal with death, we are seeing how human beings would behave if ww had not been given the amazing gift of immortal souls "in the image of God".(IMHO. )
