The Sisterhood of Widows is the ultimate online grief support site for widows and it’s here to help you create a new life after the death of your loved one. 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.

I was widowed at the age of fifty and I understand your pain and loneliness. I offer you compassion and encouragement– seeing that you are struggling I am here to help you stand on your own and to say “Yes” you can do it.

Please take advantage of all our resource pages, plus read over the blog postings and become part of our community by commenting on the blogs or in the forum.  For even more support, get the free downloadable guides under the Just For You section to the right.  You are not alone and you don’t have to struggle by yourself. We are here to encourage and guide you.
