I met Ellen Gerst of Legacy Connect, www.connect.legacy.com through a mutual internet friend. When I found her site, I was blown away by the many services they provide to those dealing with loss and especially by her Pick-Up-Sticks theory of grief. I encourage you to visit this website, do some reading, or partake of their services. If you're not grieving yourself but know someone who is, you'll find helpful suggestions there, too.
On Monday, Ellen will be a guest blogger for Widowsphere. I'll be posting her delightful story about taking risks and reaching out after the death of her first husband. Be sure to stop by. I'm sure you'll enjoy meeting Ellen.
