My friends brother died at the weekend in quite horrific and tragic circumstances, she was just leaving work and seen him brought in and didn't realise it was him until a few mins later so she is obviously extremely traumatised.
iv sent a card, she's not really replying to texts but has asked me to meet up next week, iv offered to have her baby and offered some food etc but no replies, trying not to badger her really. Would you send any flowers? Or maybe just wait till next week when I see her and can maybe get her something with more meaning (?? what though)

I personally wouldn't buy anything, you offering her practical and emotional help is enough. My friend's brother also died very tragically (would have been his 24th birthday today actually) and there was nothing anyone could buy her to make it better. All you can do is be there for her because she'll probably be numb.

How awful for your poor friend. I agree with LB, I think that just being there at this stage is enough, to listen and to offer practical help. Thinking of her x

That's awful. I would also hold off from getting anything for her. I think the offer of practical help is enough for now xx

Thanks both. Il meet up with her next week and again offer any help so difficult to know what to do though xx
