Search for LDS widows & widowers. It's a closed group so apply and tell them your story and that you know me. They like to keep creepers off so they verify everyone. It's an awesome group and they have regional offshoots. I think there is a good group in Texas and they should be doing something this fall. Veronica Connell Clarke is my Facebook name. Your in good company... Not a great club to have to join, but lots of awesome supportive people.

I'm so very sorry for your loss, but glad you've found us. A good place to start is the Groups; you'll find others there with circumstances similar to your own. The Chat room is great for real time support. Join in when you're ready. I hope you'll find the same understanding here that I have.
