My mother-in-law lost her husband of 35 years suddenly last year. It is still very hard for the family to let go of such a great man. But we have been trying to help my mother-in-law with the loss too. Nothing we do seems to be working. She is trying to be brave and strong, but we can all see it is eating her up inside. Everything I suggest she has shot down, gave some kind of a reason. We don't know what to say. Help us, help her. How can we help her grieve if we are still grieving ourselves. I thought a support group would be great for her. What do you think?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
