Recommendations for Memoirs/Books about Spousal Loss in our Age Bracket?

I just lost my husband to PanCan Stage 4 in March 2020. Cancer/complications really sucker punched him, he passed just less than 4 months from diagnosis. I was really in shock for the first two months. And since I'm the San Francisco Bay Area we went into COVID19 SIP (Shelter In Place) just 5 days after he passed...not able to have a Celebration of Life service. Yep, I struggled.I found listening to memoirs on Audio Books has really helped me, but the ones I have found so far are younger widows…See More

About My Journey

My husband passed in mid-March 2020 after a brutal but relatively short battle with pancreatic cancer. We married later in life and had 20 action-packed awesome years together.

Our county went on COVID19 SIP less than a week after he passed, so these first few months have really been a challenge -no memorial service, slogging through paperwork with so many entities in shutdown/restricted mode, etc.

Plus, there is nowhere to get away and clear my mind. I can't go to so many of the wonderful places that hold treasured memories. Not that I think I'll find him in those places, I just want to wrap my senses in what is familiar, comforting and treasured to celebrate my soulmate.
