I am a music teacher living in Michigan. Like most people I have experienced plenty of loss in the decades of my life, but on February 13, 2015 I lost the love of my life, my husband of just 16 months. Writing about loss seemed like a good way to process my grief. I shared posts with a few friends and was encouraged to start this blog. I hope people will share their own stories of loss and that we can take wisdom and comfort from each other.
