My friend passed away in early 2013.
He wasn't a best friend but a friend.
When he passed away I visited he's parents house and talked to them and his siblings.
I wasn't really a friend to his parents or siblings so I've never really made the attempt to have a friendship with them or visit them since then as I wanted to leave the past behind me.
Did I do the right thing?

It was up to you how close you wanted to be to his family. I can't see that you had made something wrong. And if your friend does not mind in the past, there is really nothing you have to blame to yourself.
It doesn’t sound like you did anything wrong to me. It might have been nice for your friend’s family to have got to know you but equally they may not have felt the need to either. Either way, I don’t think there can have been any expectation on you to have done so. Everyone deals with death differently.
