Men tend to be very direct and prefer not to talk things out like women do. Suggest once that if he really wants to speak to his mother, then he should contact her and resolve whatever is between them. Don't harp on it though. It's painful for him and it's his pain. Whether he takes action to communicate with her again (regardless of the root cause) is his choice.
