Dying cousin in law

My cousin's husband is dying, suddenly, of cancer, in the same city in which I live. We weren't particularly close and haven't socialized directly at all, though we saw each other all the time at large family functions. Certainly I know him well enough but that's as far as it goes. Anyway, he's dying rapidly at home. Won't make the week. Apparently the house is filled with people coming and going. Should I go to say good bye? I don't think so. I think I can be more supportive to the survivors once he's gone. We weren't close at all and I just think if there's tons of people coming and going who obviously think they are close enough to warrant it, I'd be one more person chewing up pretty precious time for the family. Also, I feel like it would be excessive to show up now. I'm happy to make some food and go by in the aftermath. I have got it right, haven't I?
