After 32 years with the "love of my life", I joined the Widow's Club, then learned everything I could, and summarize it in this book.
After 32 years with the "love of my life", I got to join the worst club ever: the Widow's Club. My life experiences and situation let me cope with it better than most, magnified by me diving into the pain/grief, and learning everything I could on the topic. After participating in dozens of forums, helping others, participating in some podcasts, I decided to summarize what I could in this book.
