I did not find Daily Strength until about a month ago. I wish I had found it a long time ago. I am so glad that someone started this Widow group. I lost my husband of 36 years suddenly in Sept 2006. He was not sick and he died at home while we were talking and watching television. I have read a few books and done some research online and I believe when you lose someone suddenly you grieve differently.
