I  would not applaud, the same I don't applaud when someone is readmitted, I respect the victims that this person may have hurt and are present at the meeting and still deal  with that situation.

We were told communication  with family  members was fine. Just not on spiritual matters

Not always. I remember visiting a JW family,  friends very closed to my family, one of the adult daughters was just disfellowshipped, she lived at the next door. Suddenly 2 elders came to meet with this family. I told them I was leaving to give them privacy and but they told me to stay as I was a very closed friend to the family and also to learn about procedures. They told the family that no under any circumstances they should talk to her, unless someone is dying, otherwise nothing, not even about day-to-day affairs

I have seen Witnesses who were told by the person to be disfellowshipped that it would happen next week, try to get in as much time as they could with that person until the announcement was made ... THEN ... they "ceased to exist".
