Let her morn, death is very hard to deal with. Just be there when she needs you. Hug her and don't pressure her to do anything. Don't buy anything... you will just look like your reaching.

It's only been a few days. A person needs much more time to mourn the death of a human being. Just be there for her, but don't expect her to just get over it within a couple days. I hope she feels better soon though, good luck.

I know that this sucks but the only thing that you can do is just be that shoulder and to show her that you care. When my mom passed away 2 months before I got married one of the things that pulled me through was my faith that I will see her again when it's my time and my fianc just being there through the whole planning of her funeral and just being that shoulder for me to cry on. It's going to take time and she needs to grieve but just be there for her and that's the best thing that you can do

Encourage her to talk about it. My mom died when I was 17 (7 yrs. ago), and instead of crying to be sad, I could talk about her and still cry, but they were happy tears remembering all the fun we had together, instead of sad tears from her being gone. And it gets easier after time, I promise.

Just be there for her.
Hug her and hold her until she's done crying.
It's a very tough issue for her and it's beat if you let her cry it out.
Just be supportive and considerate.
She's in need of attention, right now.
Talk to her, about how she's in a good place and she's in good hands.
I think she just mostly wants a shoulder to cry on.
Be her BIG TEDDY BEAR(:

You can help her learn the stages of grief and how to work through them and be ok again. Go to http://www.recover-from-grief.com/7-stages-of-grief.html. You can also look online how to overcome grief. She is lucky to have a great friend like you to care so much about her.
Take care and god bless.
