Uncertainty of Death (Perspective of a Friend)

My good friend is in the hospital across the country. She is my age (mid-20s) and has a ton of potential. Because of school and money I only have one chance to fly out, so I won't be visiting her (she is also heavily sedated anyways). There is an at least 50% chance she will die of this (though that is an older number and it has likely gotten worse since then). I'm looking for quotes, poems, prayers, or stories not for her, but for her friends, to help deal with this uncertainty and stress. [more inside]

Anybody Here Seen My Old Friend Bruce, Can You Tell Me Where He's Gone?

While searching for an old friend on Facebook, I found out that he had died a year ago, "unexpectedly at home." Usually that means something bad. What's an appropriate response given that amount of time? Should I follow-try to contact his wife, whom I never met?
