So sorry to hear of yet another tragedy. Your local Hospice ( and I seem to remember some excellent ones on the coast, some of which I taught at ) may be able to help loan a counsellor with grief experience, and might be able to lend some useful self-help books o grief which could help to guide you as to how to be most useful to her.
Being basically supportive, allowing her to talk about him and her grief WHEN she wants to, and not to talk about it when she doesn't, is actually very useful. Its hard to generalize about whether the overseas trip in May would be a good idea--- it could well be a bit too soon for her ( let alone you ) to be able to really enjoy it. Is it possible to postpone it, without losing money and the possibilities of whatever you two were to do over there ?
