We had been together for 48 years, since we were 20 year-old juniors in college. Although I have long been a mental health specialist, I am a man, and it was only with repeated urging by our 2 adult daughters that I agreed to seek help for the first time, joining several bereavement support groups, including one specifically for widowers, and getting individual bereavement counseling. They have been incredibly helpful to me through this difficult time, In addition, my experiences have prompted me to begin writing prose and poetry. I look forward to contributing what I can as a board member."
