it's time to...
a support group for widows ready to reclaim their lives
this is my story
I became a widow at the age of 53.
We met when I was only 14 and he was a year older.
By 16, he was my one and only. And, at the young age of 21, we were married.
We lived a life many would describe as the American dream. We both worked. Neil was a dentist and joined his dad’s practice. I worked in marketing/public relations and stayed employed full time until our 3rd child was born.
We were a family of 5, living in a beautiful home in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario with a dog, pool & a nanny. Our large, extended families lived close by and we had many friends who completed our life.
On May 20, 2014 my world came crashing down. My 54-year old husband passed suddenly and completely unexpectedly of a heart attack as he was getting ready to go to work.
The years since have been a whirlwind of emotion, learning, growing, planning, silence, loneliness & change.
Is this where I thought my life would be? NO!
But, life happens & I am determined to make the best of it.
Won’t you join me in a positive, enriching & encouraging movement toward life?
