I'm so sorry for your loss. Just know I'm always just a phone call or message away if u need a shoulder to lean on. He is always with u n may send u some signs while he is transitioning. Just tell him he can stay as long as he wants but that u will be ok that it's OK to leave. I don't wish a death of a love one to anyone. Just remember the good times n his favorite sayings. I still do it all the time n make sure everyone knows where I get the quotes from. It helps to honor them and helps release some of the pain u r going through.
