Overview

How do you survive the loss of the one dearer to you than any other on earth?

After graduating from high school in Campbellsville, Kentucky, Brenda went to work for the FBI in Washington, D.C. She met and married her first husband, Ron Fahey on September 21, 1968.

On March 20, 1995, Brenda's life took a sudden turn when she returned home from work to find that Ron had died suddenly. The journal that she began that night not only includes the two years after Ron's death but also covers the loss of Billy, her second husband, in March of 2002.

I Don't Know How to be a Widow: My Journal of Faith and Hope, has been called "timeless." We all have (or probably will) suffer the loss of someone we cherish. Brenda's journal shows that God's grace and mercy are new each morning and will never fail.
