Virtual MeetUps?

While we're quarantined / sheltered in place / social distancing we can still gather virtually. Widowed Village is a wonderful place to stay in touch with others who understand what it's like to lose your person. Posting in the Groups or in the Forum Discussions connects you to others.

But we can also offer you the opportunity to chat live now and then using ZOOM. If you would like to have a one-hour Zoom meeting scheduled for a Village Group that you participate in, please send an email to [email protected] and I'll set it up for you.

"Sorry to hear that Sue. It’s a horrible illness and the experts keep trying but cannot wrap their heads around the way this virus behaves. Most viruses can only survive outside the body for a short time—not this one. We are experiencing…"
