Review for Soaring Spirits International, Simi Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I always thought I was a strong person. That all changed on Sept 6, 2008. I was only strong because I had the firm arms of my husband to hold me up. I was only 46 when John died. We had grew up together, only 17 when engaged. We laughed, cried, prayed, fought, loved, rasied children both together. How was I to go on without my better part of me? Then I found SSLF. I made plane & hotel reservations, knowing all along I was alone in this. That changed from the moment I got my registration packet to today. I wasn't alone anymore. I had women across the universe that were struggling just as I was. We all became one that weekend. I still have times of grief, probably will forever, but I know I can go to any one of my SSLF friends, (thru the magic of Facebook) anytime of the day or night, and I will find comfort knowing I am not alone.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting other widowed people who really understood me, and having the opportunity to hold each other up as we found a way to live totally different life ahead of us.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

understanding, caring, and helpful.

Ways to make it better...

SSLF had the funds to make Camp Widow a free program.
