Widow Potluck

 It’s one week to Christmas and I can’t think of anything I would rather do then spend the afternoon with other widows. Eating and sharing our memories: the good, the bad and the ugly.

 They have been widowed from 8 years to as little as 5 weeks and yet you can feel the connection amongst the group. It is all part of the progress, because as we grieve we need our widow friends even more.

    I just finished your book. It was amazing and very candid. Most people think that after a certain time we should through the grieving process. I believe people are thinking differently now.
    Mary, I am an Executive Director for N.B. Assoc of Employee Assistance Programs (nbaeap.ca). We get several request for someone to speak on the grieving process at our annual conference. Would you be interested in doing a breakout session (1.3 hrs)at our Conference in Fredericton May 2nd and 3rd 2011. I live in Grand Bay-Westfield and would meet you at Tims if you had any questions. I am also an Employee Assistance Resource Agent at N.B.Power and talk to several people that have struggled with the loss of a loved one. People think that grieving only relates to someone passing. People grieve over any loss. I’m very proud of you Mary. You took the challenge and ran with it. Good on you. I will encourage anyone, man or woman to read your work. Thanks
