You have my sincerest condolences - losing someone is never easy. I am a professional counselor and suggest that you talk to someone about your pain. We don't seem to be able to go on until the cup of heartache is emptied.

I'm sorry to hear that...I lost my grandfather in 2000 and it still hurts until now because he was the one who brought me up. I think, doing the things you'd want to do to and saying the things you wanna say to your son would help you move on. MAke your son a living memory of your partner but never try to find your partner's person in your son. Learn to divert your attention. Moving on should start from you. If you think you need more help, there counselling or seminars available and also the church is a good source of help.
