Theme of the Show: Life of a Widow
Guest: Linda Mcveigh and Marie Bercier Carter
Lead Host: Mara Lees
It is impossible to understand the depth of pain and emotions a person maybe feeling after the death of their spouse or Life partner. As we are all unique individuals… therefore we are unique with our thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Linda McVeigh and Marie Bercier Carter shared their personal story of losing their spouses. For Linda it was 12 years and for Marie five years. There is no time limited for grief!
Verses from the poem Gift of a friend by Karin Schaefer.
There are days when joy abundant
grabs a hold of you and me
warps us up in all it’s splendor
lifts us up and sets us free
There are days when sorrow
wraps us in its cloak of grief and fear
“till our hearts ache to the breaking
“till our eyes can’t shed a tear
Our hope for this show was possible to bring to the listener the knowledge they are not alone with their emotions of grief.
