Default Bonding with one after losing one :(

Hi all. I've been on a bit. I have (had) 2 boys that were rescues from a pet hoarding situation. They were very bonded, and I've had them for 2 years. One died yesterday. He had been sick on and off so I was expecting it, but still so very sad today. Is it possible that my remaining guy will bond more with me now, without his mate? Of the 2 birds, he is the more skittish and fearful. His mate was very calm, but neither were hand tamed. They both have had a bond of sorts with me, though, as I am in their room every day, most days, working. I won't get another bird because the remaining boy is the more aggressive and reactive, and I don't think that it would go over well. So, he's got me as a mate now. Is there anything I can do to help him through this loss? Thank you so much!
