Phenomenal Podcast!

I happened upon this podcast about a month after my spouse’s death. The way Anita and Mel keep it “real” is very helpful. No sugar coating the reality of loss. It’s like having a community of friends who actually get it and will sit with you on your grief journey. I am beyond thankful that I found this podcast and the Widow Wives Club Facebook Group. It makes me feel not so alone. Thank you for the honesty, laughs, sarcasm, love and support.

The best!!!!

Anita and Mel are always with me in the car and I feel like I’m traveling with friends. Widow friends who get it, are honest and funny and make me feel less alone in my grief. They’re awesome!!!!

Nothing has helped me navigate my grief more than this podcast. Massive thanks to Anita and Mel!❤️
