In November of 2006 my husband recieved his green card. 4 months later, his father died and his mother was ill.He returned to his country for a visit-that has turned into almost 2 years..Upon trying to return,were finding out that the green card has expired and he should have filled a re-entry before leaving..however it's a little to late for that.So how do I proceed? I was the one who sponsored my husband.

You may need to file for him again (unfortunately). You can assume that they consider his green card abandoned because of the delay and his failure to file a re-entry permit. You could show his father's death certificate but even then it cannot justify 2-years abroad. This is assuming the facts that you've given me.
