There's nothing more helpful than making it clear that you care and feel sympathetic and are genuinely available whenever ( and ifever ) he wants to talk about this and how he feels about it. I'm not sure from your message whether it is the recently deceased man's younger brother who committed suicide, or your husband's brother, but either was its important to discuss. Your husband will be well aware of how terrible is the suffering a suicide causes to those who care about hm, something people approaching a suicide decision often ignore. Reactions are often complex, including sorrow of course, but also anger, and guilt ( why didn't he call me first ? )
