← Religion as "comfort" to people in distress: fact or myth?

So I have a friend who is atheist. She is going through a significant amount of loss. Our differing views have never been an issue. We mostly joke back and forth however, lately, I find myself struggling for how to support her. I mostly stay quiet and listen....still I wish I knew what to say. What "should" I say? How can I offer support without being as offensive as you mention in this discussion?
