I have never wanted to be someone who gives Widow advice. There are no step-by-step guides here, no one-size-fits-all remedies—just the ho...

The Unfiltered Thoughts of Widows

When I was going through my toughest times, Rebecca's podcast was a great source of comfort to me. Her direct approach, mixed with humor, helped me cope with my grief. Among all the episodes, my favorite is "Breaking Silence: The Unfiltered Thoughts of Widows".

I just wanted to say thank you, Rebecca, for making me laugh during those moments when I felt like crying, screaming, or throwing things. Your podcast will always be remembered as your legacy.
