I could do with some help re grieving

DH lost his brother recently. His brother was older than him but young, and they were close. Understandably DH is low but the family way is to get on with and try not dwell on it or talk much about it.

I've been trying to be there, but nothing I seem to do seems to be right. This, rather stupidly, is making me feel insecure in our relationship (I know it's not about me and I'm not trying to make it so), but he's withdrawing and wants space and I'm feeling rejected (wrongly, I realise).

How do I handle this to help him? I just don't know how to help him. I'd appreciate any advice.
