I am so sorry to hear of your loss and the silence of your partner. 

Because you are some distance apart and he is not talking right now you don't know what comforting words he needs to hear. I have a suggestion that will show you care but not assume you know how he feels. Follow the link below:

HELP FOR THOSE WHO GRIEVE - The intense feelings associated with grief are normal. when my father in law passed away I got sick, It was like having a virus but knowing that that was the ways some people react was comforting to me... I was normal. this is a page that can be detached and hung on the frig for a reminder.

COPING WITH GRIEF 

  • 1: ACCEPT SUPPORT FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS

    According to your needs, balance time spent with others and time spent alone.

  • 2: WATCH YOUR DIET, AND MAKE TIME FOR EXERCISE

    Eat healthful food, drink plenty of water, and exercise moderately.

  • 3: GET PLENTY OF SLEEP

    Recognize that sleep is essential to dealing with the fatigue of grieving.

  • 4: BE FLEXIBLE

    Since everyone grieves differently, find what works for you.

  • 5: AVOID SELF-DESTRUCTIVE HABITS

    Avoid the misuse of alcohol or drugs​—which creates more problems than it solves.

  • 6: BALANCE YOUR TIME

    Alternate periods of grieving with time for socializing and recreation.

  • 7: KEEP A ROUTINE

    Regain a sense of normalcy by keeping yourself occupied with a good routine.

  • 8: AVOID MAKING BIG DECISIONS TOO SOON

    If possible, wait a year or more before making big decisions you may later regret.

  • 9: REMEMBER YOUR LOVED ONE

    Collect pictures and mementos or write in a journal to keep alive your memory of the person who has died.

  • 10: GET AWAY

    Make time for a change of pace​—

"Something I have noticed is that the content of a dream may not be a big deal, but what you are feeling in the dream is where the power comes from. The dream I had was horrible. It was so short, but I had a sick feeling in my stomach throughout.…"

"I dream about my Mom & Dad & thankfully they are always good dreams that are comforting.  An Aunt that I was close to is in a lot of the dreams with my parents.  I have one sibling. He is never in the dreams of my parents.  I…"

Kathleen Jordan commented on Anna-Marie's blog post When does the crying stop.
"Even though dream moon can't do grammar, I agree. It doesn't stop...it will hit at moments out of the clear blue....4 years, 9 years or 20.  It is a loss, and it's real."
