Is this normal behavior?

Hello, I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, living together for over a year.  I think I'm starting to realize that we are not right for each other.  I just need to know how others would feel about something in particular.  My father died in December.  It was unexpected and took and huge toll on me.  I only have a small immidiate family, so lossing him really wrecked my life.  I am dealing ok though, I do what I have to do and I don't mope around all day.  I have moments where I get really upset, which I think is understandable.  My boyfriend was good when it happened, he was by my side through everything.  Its just when it comes to talking about how I feel about it he could care less.  I feel like I have to hide when I am upset.  My Dad died not my cat.  So today being fathers day, i was feeling down leading up to today and I told my boyfriend this.  I told him this morning that I can't believe this is the rest of my life, no reason to celebrate fathers day.  He basically said nothing.  I just want a hug or for him to say something. I went to the cemetery and spent time with my mom and nephew.  I havent heard from my boyfriend.  Why am I getting this coldness from him?  What would you do?
