Hello All.

Thank you thank you for all your thoughts, prayers,and  kindnesses after my mother's passing.

I miss her terribly but going one step at a time. I miss Drew terribly of course  and now  I am crying and hollering for them and others  as I prepare another bubble bath to try to relax.

The other half of the  Pepsi Cola scholarship girls  as the neighborhood called them, entered hospice two hours before  Mom died. Auntie is still in hospice, end stage Alz…

Nice meeting you at camp!

At 7:54am on January 3, 2012, CrazyWidow said… Hi Drewlady, just wanted to invite you to our post-holiday widows bash in Harrisburg on 1/14 - I hope you can join us!

I am the process of planning a Holiday Bash for widows in or near Central Pennsylvania for sometime in mid-December on a weeknight.  So far we have an offer for a private room in a restaurant in New Holland (Eastern Lancaster County) with no obligation to purchase a meal or drinks, just a nice place to hang with one another. If you're interested, please join in on this conversation: Thank you!

Hi there - so happy you want to attend Camp Widow East ... but sorry the site is giving you issues.  The link above has the contact names and numbers for Camp. Looks like Barbara Frova is the one for registration:  877.671.4071 ext 707; [email protected]

I'm also posting a note on Michele's FB page that you've been having this issue. She has responded quickly to my Camp concerns over there.  Don't worry - we'll get you taken care of!

welcome to Widville, I am sorry for your loss and that you, like all of us, have a reason to be here.  I was reading some of your posts and it sounds like you have done a lot to help cope.  Can you give me a little more info your Widows Wear Stilletos' group?  I am in south jersey, but there is not a lot down here and was wondering if I might be able to join your group?  I grew up in Delaware County, so know the area well; although it has changed A LOT in the years since I last lived there.   thanks

HI Drewlady!

I love reading your comments! You seem so self assured! I wish that was me. I was married for 27 years and my husband was the outgoing one. Now that he's gone I can see my old personality reemerging and it's very shy! When you say that you've learned to be are you doing that? on earth are you doing things alone? I'd love some helpful hints! Take care,

Love and loss are strong bonds that make us move toward others with similar experiences. Welcome. I hope you find the strength and hope you need as we talk and share. I am glad you are here. We are a collection of diverse people with a unique set of circumstances that make us good companions.
