What about a kind of keepsake box for her to hold photos, notes, jewelry, or other items that remind her of her mom?  Or a crafted journal for her to write down her thoughts?

my cousin passed away about two yrs ago at 29, since he wasn't married they had all of his clothes left. His sister had my mom sew a quilt out of his shirts to give to their mother for christmas. I thought maybe this might be a idea for your friend.

Maybe a little shrine of her mom or if she's religious a shrine to her fav God or Deity to help bring her comfort.

I was thinking the same type of thing or maybe a combo of that.  One of the things I seen and done is to take some photos of their mother and print them off on fabric and use some of her clothes and make a memory quilt for them.

if you're able to get a photo of the mother you could always make a scrapbook page with a flower from the funeral, her prayer card and a photo in the middle. add a poem ( i added the link).. i used this one when i made one of these scrap pages. http://mrmom.amaonline.com/whentomorrow.htm

Then i framed it and gave it to the person.
