How do I stay in my Home? I'm not on the lease and my roommate who was died?

So my roommate died. I am not on the lease. I want to stay at my house, but the landlord doesn t know I live there. We had talked about me moving in to him, but we hadn t moved forward on it. How do I convince him to let me stay (or move in) there when I call him to tell him the news?
