I have been compelled to write about my emotional journey through widowhood over many years and now I have a chance to share it. We who are widowed are not alone. Grief can draw us away from the world and into ourselves, but writing about the process helps to bring us back.
This has also been a way for me to honor my late husband. He was such a joy to be with—always upbeat, always putting others before himself, always “there.” Our partnership was the great joy of my life and I will always be grateful for our time together.
