console a friend after the death of a family member?

I haven't talked to my guy friend since january (we were just to busy with work, missed each other on MSN) and in late june his 8 year old brother was killed. I only found out recently, and now I want to ask him if he's okay, and I'm sorry to hear what happened because I knew his little brother.

Does it seem uncaring/really late to console him a month after the tradegy? What if he really doesn't want to talk about it anymore? The news was spread around his sixth form (my old school) so I didn't find out until I went down there one day.

Ouch what a situation to be in I would say something subtle that he can pick up on if he wants to? It might seem a bit cold if you ignore it altogether but I'm sure he'll realise you're just trying not to upset him by talking about it. Personally I'd just ask if they were ok and let them know I was there if they wanted to talk about it, then talk about something neutral.
