It's touching that he wanted to spare your feelings.
What you said in response was awesome. Probably just the words he needed to hear.
If I should go first, I would not want my husband to wear a sack-cloth and ashes and never date again. I would want him to find someone too.

I lost my sister to breast cancer almost a year ago. she was 47 years old. I am 42. I was there when she had surgery and there when she was dying. I miss her but I know she is with me always. I had a conversation with her husband last week. He was afraid I would be upset if he started dating again. This is what I said. We are nothing but a speck in this universe. My sister would want you to be happy. You were there when it counted and she knows that. She would not want you to be miserable or me. She isn't coming back and she is in heaven looking upon us and she would want us to be happy. She isn't in any pain and she can do whatever she wants to now. I think that is awesome
Every day, you have a choice, from the moment you wake up: to make this day a good day or something else. You can choose your attitude. You can change your life! What will you choose today?
