New to WV

Hi all. I am new to WV. I became a widow in 2009 when my husband tragically lost his life in an airline crash at the age of 52.

I am surprised that 6 years out and It still is so tough. Sometimes I feel more alone now that I did a few years ago.

Does anyone else feel that way?

Also, I read about the Widows camp. Can anyone offer me some feedback on that? Is this camp only for those who have lost someone more recently? Also, for those who have attended, did you attend alone or… Continue

Jiggs, thank you for your message.  I lost my husband last year and the pain is still very raw.  I also feel so alone even in the company of people.

Hi Jiggs,

My husband and oldest son died together in a plane crash in 2009 also. I've been here in Widowed Village ever since. It's been an essential tool on my journey through grief but you're right, it's still tough! Camp helps a lot and believe it or not I've met many that lost spouses in a plane crash there. I've sent you an invitation to be friends in case you're interested. I'm available most of the time. Take care....
