I just wanted to let the members of this group who are grieving the loss of a spouse or partner know that there is a Daily Strength group for Widows & Widowers. There are some things that come up while grieving the loss of a spouse/partner that can only be understood by those grieving that same kind of loss.

I am one of the Community Leaders for the Widows & Widowers Group appointed by Daily Strength (you can identify the CLs by the little blue CL badge on our photos). My co-CLs are Shrn and marjoe.
I joined DS nearly 10 years ago, after my husband Cliff died suddenly. I felt that no one close to me could understand the pain I was I was enduring. Being on DS, and specifically being in the Widows & Widowers Group, helped me to rebuild my life. The group is open to anyone grieving a spouse or partner - straight or gay, young or old, married or not. If you are suffering the same kind of loss, we'd like to help. It is also perfectly all right to belong to more than one group here - you don't have to leave the Bereavement group to join us.
