It is tough to connect with other widowed people in this area - When I lost my husband, Wayne, in 2013 I was directed to a group over by Mt. Carmel off broad street out east - and it was a grief group...not specific to widows/widowers. It is a tough journey and a lonely one if you are in Westerville. - feel to write or email me anytime! I am 58 years old with 3 grown children, 2 boys and a girl. One grandson, the light in my world! I am nearing the 2 year mark on this lonely road, and the "new normal" is not a thing I am getting used to. I found WV about 6 months or so after my loss and it has helped a lot - talking/writing with those that share my grief helps me to know that I am not alone...and not crazy.
