Is this a good sign? Is this a good step towards another chance to communicate?

My ex and I broke up in late March. We were together for 8 months.
I heard from him a week ago for the first time, but under devastating circumstances.
His grandmother and his family dog both passed away within a week of each other.
His exact words were: “I just thought you would want and deserved to know since you cared for both of them. Please forgive me for not letting you know sooner. I just couldn't seem to write this until now. Hope you're doing well...”

I have made no attempt to contact him, before or after this recent contact. And I hadn’t spoken to him at all since we broke up. I won’t because I don’t want to be overwhelming or imposing.

I hope this means that he still cares about me, and that there could be another chance for us to communicate.
Is this a good sign? Is this a good step towards another chance to communicate?
