Grief Support

In the days after Mike passed, I needed to remember to breathe and eat.

That was hard enough. 
Then I went searching for more.  Here are some of my favorites.  Some still help me.  I hope you can find something that you need.


  • Confessions of a Mediocre Widow: Or, How I Lost My Husband and My Sanity by Catherine Tidd

  • A Time to Grieve by Carol Staudacher

  • Making Piece: a Memoir of Love, Loss and Pie by Beth M. Howard - The book I read before I needed it.

  • When the Game is Over it all Goes Back in the Box by John Ortberg - Thanks Cari for suggesting so long ago!  The monopoly piece image has stayed with me.​
