I would just call and talk with her. I am not sure that Happy New Year would even be appropriate at this time. I would definitely let her know that you are here if she needs you and remind her that her mothers pain will soon be in the past. Just be there for her, she is probably really needing a friend right now.

I wouldn't even mention the New Year unless she does. Just listen and tell her you are thinking about her and that you love her a lot. Tell her the things in your heart. They will be the right things!

Don't try to make it "all better", because you can't. Just listen and sympathize.
