I thought you might want to know what my husband Artie looked like. He always called me Panache and because of his smile I called him Dazzle. He inspired me in life and his death inspired me to create a loving, supportive worldwide community of Grief Warriors. He was a recovering alcoholic who was always available to other alcoholics and addicts. When I realized I was going to live I felt as though my reason for being had died with him. We used to call each other our raison d'être. When some of the fog lifted I decided to honor him by making myself available to other grieving people. I thought if I reached one person that would be enough. I never imagined I would reach so many.
There will be more posts to come but this one is just to get started. I am looking forward to getting to know you. I wish you the love and courage you need. With love.
