Hello. This is a difficult time and everyone mourns differently. If you have already told him that you are there for him and to let you know if he needed anything, that is pretty much all you can do right now. If you are uncertain if you are doing too much or not enough, you can ask him. Be honest and up front. Tell him that you aren't sure how to act right now and that you want him to let you know what you should be doing. Other than that, just being there and offering support is the best thing you can do.
