I feel great empathy with you and my condolences to you and the departed Soul. Literally so. God is a God of love and the heart of our Christianity is Love, compassion, forgiveness, mercy ..... This is also what has manifested in the lives of the saints for generations.
So sorry for your loss. Our Lord in His goodness and Spirit knows best and does All - in my experience - for the betterment of mankind. So I feel that your husband, having played his role, has gone to a different but safe abode.
The Soul - and this is only my understanding post having sat at the feet of a Man of God for 31 years - is immortal. It is the divine spark that gives life to the body. When the body is weak or tired ,or has to take a long rest for God's other reasons, then it passes on, and the Soul flies back from whence it came. So I feel that your husband is very much alive.
You may feel his spirit, yes, and may even see him in dreams. Generally the Inner Law is not broken and he has to rest. Still, if your connection is close he can come to see you with the sanction of the Supreme or God. I do not know if that is always advisable and perhaps you should look for a God-man living, who can help. There is generally always One and purity and faith attracts Him/Her.
Discrimination and prudence, however, may teach you that you can best serve him by working for your own salvation and thereby bring him peace. Pray, serve, love, experience God in simple things and in all people. This will expand your heart and make you receptive to the Higher Light. It is the Comforter or Grace, which will teach you what you wish to know.
Once again, my love and good will to you. It is still very recent and grief has its own merit. I wish you God's blessing for inner strength and an ever-increasing beautiful vessel, full of wisdom and inner joy.
