Donna, A Photo Memoir Of Love and Loss

My wife Donna died in 2011. I was blessed to find Widowed Village and be introduced to Michele Neff Hernandez.

Early on in the group widowed in 2011 I found voices similar to mine who shared my fears and my grief. Voices that face the same struggles I did. I found my footing here and other places. Though in all honesty I will not abandon (close) my grief because I see closure as indifference and denial said pretty. I will not abandon Donna's memory or our/my love. My grief was a path to knowledge and understanding. Today grief is there but supplanted with deeper knowledge.

Part of that exercise to examine and know my grief came in writing a memoir that is now published Donna, A Photo Memoir of Love and Loss

I hope my examination of my grief and loss can help someone else. I want to return to this community the love and support I received.
