I agree, I think a friend would surely boost her spirits. And with her being a little older, she may even act as a mother to a littler rat, and that would give her a good feeling and a purpose, I think. Also, I don't know much about this sort of thing, but I do know there are rat rescue shelters, etc. that probably have older rats that old owners had abandoned for one reason or another, and maybe you could try and find another seven monther or so!
I hope I could help, and I am very sorry for your loss. You are a concerned mother, and I wish you the best of luck doing whatever you decide!
