After my husband of 40 years passed, together with the intense pain and grief, I was completely overwhelmed by all the practical things that needed to be taken of. I had no idea how to deal with all the financial and administrative affairs…felt truly “lost at sea.”
I can’t begin to describe how much I have appreciated the kindness and invaluable help from [my coach] Alan. He guided me through these uncharted waters and brought hope and stability and the reassurance that I would be okay…gentle and compassionate…step by step at my pace…answering all my questions…explaining everything so clearly and simply. I could feel the fog lifting and finally I could breathe again. My confidence returned…as my affairs came into order.
Alan was my “angel”, a gift from God, at the most painful and traumatic time of my life. I will never forget his kindness in giving up his time to guide me on this journey. Thank you Alan, and thank you to all those at Wings for Widows, for taking such good care of me.
“I just lost the one person in the world I trusted. The love of my life – my entire support system – is gone. I know my world has changed forever, but I can’t grasp what that means. I’m sad and alone, but I can’t even grieve right now. I have children and must be strong for them. I know I have many administrative and financial things to do. I’ve seen the lists of what I’m supposed to do, but nobody tells you how to do it! I need advice I can trust, but I don’t know where to get it. It’s all just painful and overwhelming.”
Sound familiar? If there were ever a time in your life you needed to ask for help, it might be now.
I am so glad I reached out. They helped me to wrap my arms around the enormity of my situation and move forward with confidence. I can’t thank them enough. Such a great resource!
