When I lost my wife to cancer in Summer 2011, everything as I knew it stopped. I struggled mightily to find my way on my own, doing OK in some areas, but not OK in many others. Then I found a group of people in the same situation; with a recent loss. We formed what I hope are lifelong bonds and friendships. I have learned something about healing and moving forward from each and every one of them, and they have never let me fall into despair. This group is for young widows and widowers (under 45) to meet and find strength through each other, and is a continuation of the Manhattan Young Widows & Widowers Group.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
