I had a fantastic discussion with Carole Marie Downing for this episode. Carole Marie lost her husband when her son was six years old. She wrote a book chronicling her first year of grief called “Singing Beyond Sorrow: A Year of Grief, Gratitude, & Grace”. She is a writer, coach, & facilitator, for widows, and was previously a hospice nurse.
We had a wide-ranging discussion on raising kids after loss, and Carole Marie shared lots of great tips and ideas.
I hope you enjoy my discussion with Carole Marie Downing.
