When my husband died (rectal cancer) I was so numb at first. As the numbness wore off and I was lost, I didn't know what to do with myself and I didn't want to burden my daughters with my grief (stupid...but that's what I felt). My therapist told me about a website that was for "young widows" and although I was 58 when he died, I went to the website. I don't know how I came to Soaring Spirits, but I'm so glad I found them. The only thing that kept me from ending my own life (and therefore my pain) was that I had two daughters and they lost their dad; they couldn't lose their mom, too, and Soaring Spirits gave me the outlet for my deep pain through Widowed Village. I found so much support and love and understanding. No matter what I said, no one judged or criticized me, because they all got it. Of all the support I tried to find, Soaring Spirits may have been the only one that filled my need. Thank you, Michele. You are amazing.
