The Widow’s Blog

After being married to my soulmate for twenty-nine years, I suddenly became a widow twenty-one years ago.

There are things you might need to know how to handle if you should become a widow. More

Because my husband and I always handled everything together, I have been determined to handle all life throws at me with humor.

Writing these humorous, sometimes informative,  widow’s blogs about learning to handle many things with only my Guardian angel husband and God by my side gives me a beautiful warm feeling.
