My DM died 18 months ago and My DF has a new girlfriend.

I am totally lost in space about what normal etiquette is or how to approach anything at all.

It would have been my DM's birthday today - and I would have phoned up my DF to see how he was doing...but now I don't want it to be weird.

I am assuming that just because he has a girlfriend doesn't mean he has stopped mourning my DM, but what if he has? I don't want to make him feel bad...gah.

Yeah - so basically any wisdom at all would be gratefully received.
