Don't let this fester any longer. This can be healed, but the longer you wait, the more difficult the recovery. Seek counseling. Bring him in if you can. If it's possible, consider a couple's retreat to help restore your relationship.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Grief affects us in so many ways. Our spouses aren't always able to deal with how we grieve. (((hugs)))
There's nothing I can say that will be better advice than this^, but I will say I'm so sorry for your loss, and I wish you the best of luck.
