My sister-in-law has been hiding out since my brother died 8 years ago, and nothing seems to get better. A friend of mine referred her to SSLF. It would be perfect for her, since she is ill and stuck at home, so a pen pal might do her good. I still can't get her to reach out, but I keep hoping she'll use this resource. I'm very glad to have something to recommend to her.

I participated in Widow Match after losing my husband to cancer three years ago. At first I was disappointed, as my matches did not write me back, but once we were finally in touch I made a lifelong friend. Thanks for being such a great support system for widows, SSLF.

Michele was a guest speaker in my university class on Death and gave a wonderfully relateable and accessible presentation. Her leadership to this foundation reflects admirable creativity and initiative -- and a life-giving, fun-loving spirit -- that inspires. June O'Connor
