The first thing you’ll notice about this site is that it’s not focused on grief and death as much as support and recovery. We offer you compassion and encouragement– seeing that you are struggling we are here to help you to stand on your own and to say “Yes” you can do it. I’m a widow and I founded “The Sisterhood of Widows” to offer online grief support and to empower you to create a new life after the death of your loved one.
On this page, click on any of the selections under “Just For You” for free supportive gifts to help you grieve and heal.” No email address is necessary.
