Losing a friend

My family is losing a friend that is more family to us. This will especially hard on my Mother because they have been the best of friends since 1964. Not a day went by that Sue came in the morning to visit and Mom went to Sue's in the afternoon. They are so close I don't know what Mom is going to do without her. It will be hard for me but not like it will be for Mother.
When she dies which is just weeks away, Mom is going to need support. She won't go to a group even a book club. I was wondering if any of you might have a book or two she might read?
