I’m so sorry for you and for your friend!  When my mother passed away I bought two books that were immensely helpful.  Grieving Mindfully, and Healing After Loss.  The first one offers an holistic approach to the grieving process, and the other is a daily meditational book that reminds you that you’re not alone in the process.  I’ve since passed them along to a friend who lost his father, and he said he found them to be very helpful.  Sending her one or both of the books and a thoughful card will, most assuredly, show you care.  Best of luck.  <hugs>

Here are links to the two books on Amazon.

My mom has lost her father, brother, and sister. I know what meant most to her was the letters (not just cards) she received. She spent weeks pouring over them, and I think still pulls them out when she feels a need to. It’s simple, but I think that its a time when simple is good.

If you know she’s going to be busy with funeral stuff, or even if she’s not, and you live nearby, I recommend bringing buy a few covered dishes that she can stick in the over and heat for meals for a few days.

People did this for us when my grandmother died, and I know it make life a lot easier for my mother in those first few hectic days.
