清明节 Tomb Sweeping Day - Question for native Chinese

Tags: 清明节, Tomb Sweeping Day

I have a question regarding Tomb Sweeping Day.  If any native Chinese could help, I'd appreciate it greatly.

I have a friend whose mother died almost a year ago.  I know this will be an especially difficult 清明节 for her.  Anyway, I would like to give her a card (and possibly a small gift).  As an "outsider", I don't want to be too obtrusive, but would appreciate some appropriate ways of expressing (in the card) my sympathy.

That's mainly what I'm looking for...what would be "normal" to write in the card...any suggestions on a gift would be a bonus.

Much thanks for any input!
