    From The Author

    When my wife of forty years died, I was devastated. I used my journal entries over the next two years as the basis for a book that details the problems I encountered and how I faced them. I wrote about my successes and my failures, and gave the most practical advice possible, based on my experience. The reports I've received since the publication of the book confirm that it provides material that will help anyone who has lost a spouse in their journey through the terrible weeks and months that follow. I had to give the book a rating in order to post this information, so I used the rating given it by every reader to whom I have talked. I hope you find it helpful, as well.

    Wish I had it sooner!

    Everyone should read this. If you haven't lost a spouse it will help to understand those that have. I lost my husband two months ago (June 2008) after 42 years of marriage. So many of Dr. Mabry's suggestions I had already done so it helped me to know I wasn't crazy. Changing furniture around, writing letters to my husband, etc. It was as if I had written the book because it explained my feelings so well. I read it twice through the first night I had it. Thanks, Dr. Mabry!
