Writing Chapter Two: Loss, Grief, and Widowhood

Nov 21, 2016

Friends and family gather this week for the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s a time when we celebrate with each other and give thanks. But holidays can be an especially difficult time for those who have lost a spouse or another loved one.

This hour, we take a look at loss, grief and widowhood. If you are a young widow or widower, how do you begin a new chapter of life?

We talk with three Connecticut residents about their journeys and we hear from Becky Aikman. She's the author of Saturday Night Widows: The Adventures of Six Friends Remaking Their Lives.

Have you lost a spouse or partner early in your relationship?
