Hi, Dan. What's the approximate timing for lunch tomorrow? I want to figure out whether it makes sense for me to attend the garden club meeting at 10 AM. When you get a better idea of Debbie's arrival time, my cell number is 913 752-7173.

Hi, Dan- just wanted to let you know that I'll be totally out of touch tomorrow- from the gym early in the AM to a Diocesan meeting that's supposed to go till 4 (discussing the budget- ugh) to dinner and the symphony with friends later.  Long day.  How about meeting for coffee sometime Monday?  My only constraint is that I have to be in Overland Park around 5:30 PM.

Hi, Dan! Thanks for the invite.  Where are you in the KC area?  I'm in Raytown.

Dan, as a woman in my bereavement group said to "welcome" me on my first meeting: "It's shitty to meet you!"

But that was 6 months after I lost my beloved wife Joy.

You've just begun your grief journey.

There are no words. We're all different...our relationships were different...our grief journey will be different. And yet there's something beyond words that we have in common and that's the pain of our loss.

I'm 10 years on my grief journey. 

I'm in a new relationship...and yet I still feel the presence of my late wife, Joy, very strongly in my life.

I've written a memoir about my experience:  JOYride: How My Late Wife Loved Me Back To Life. 

I've also written another grief-inspired book:  Grief Quest: A Workbook & Journal to Heal the Grieving Heart. 

I'll leave you with what someone who experienced with loss told me when I began this journey—there's no way around it, only through it.

Dan, it's shitty to meet you!
