How to comfort a friend in a terrible situation?

My friend has just been dumped by her fiancee. They had been happily together for 14 years. 3 months before the wedding he announced that he no longer loves her and walked out.
She is completely devastated - she also knows that even if he changed his mind she would never go back to him because all the trust would be gone. She is 32 and has to start all over again.
I find that I do not know what to say to comfort her or what advice to give her especially having never been in this situation myself. I was wondering if any of you had any words of wisdom I could pass on to her.
