Lone mouse

I've had two mice, Zelda and Aurora, in a cage together for about a year. They got along great, slept together, ate together, and ran on the wheel together. Unfortunately, Zelda died last night. A similar incident happened to me once before, and the surviving mouse chewed himself to death in a matter of days, from boredom I'm assuming.

My question is, should I get a cagemate for Aurora? Or since she's so old and has only been with Zelda her whole life, would it be a bad idea to bring a young mouse into her cage?
