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 Mary Francis 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.  This site is full of grief resources that cover the loss of a parent, spouse, child or dear friend so please take your time and check each page for it’s own unique support.

For even more grief support and counseling sign up for my free Monthly Newsletter and enjoy its articles, the suggested book of the month, grief quotes and grief resources.

Please listen to the audio below of “Chapter One” from “The Sisterhood of Widows”.  This book was part of my own grief journey after my husband of 27 years died at the age of 53.
