If I were you I would go. Sometimes just being there is a comfort to someone. You don't need to have fancy words of sympathy or bring gifts. Just go and hang out. If something needs done, lend a hand. Sometimes when people are grieving simple housework seems overwhelming. I have walked into a friends house, started a pot of coffee, emtied the garbage, washed the dishes and just acted like I lived there. (Mind you, this was a very good friend.) She was relieved that someone was taking care of household business so she could greet people who were coming over with food and condolences.

It is sorry to hear the message. My advise is leave her alone for some time and take her out for some other place to forget the incident
