sympathy card

My best friend's mother passed away this morning.  She'd battled cancer for the last year.

Normally, I'm very good about writing sympathy notes.  I don't use the preprinted ones from the store, and I usually manage to write a message without much difficulty.

This time, I'm having so much trouble.  Her mother was a wonderful woman who loved her family and did everything she could for them.  She leaves behind a husband, two daughters and a grandson.

What do I say to my friend?  I feel I owe her something more than the standard, "I'm sorry for your loss."  My heart is just breaking for her right now.  She's a very private person, and she's been at her parents' house a few hours away for the past two weeks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
