Mary Lee Robinson found herself suddenly widowed in February of 2013. Finding herself very much alone, Mary Lee was led to create a Social Group for widows and widowers (or as she fondly refers to them and herself, “wids”). It grew to 170 widows in 8 months, telling a lot about the need.
Next she gathered 25 other “wids” who wanted to participate in the writing of a book The Widow or Widower Next Door, a collection of 25 questions answered by 25 “wids.” The book is aimed at anyone who has ever met a widow or widower, is a widow or widower, or may possibly become a widow or widower. In other words, we think it should be read by everyone.
She has also co-authored Grief Diaries: Loss of a Spouse, Grief Diaries: Hello from Heaven, Grief Diaries:How to Help the Newly Bereaved and contributed to Grief Diaries: Loss of a Parent, and Grief Diaries scheduled for release. All are available on this site in the web store as well as Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
Mary Lee Robinson is also a Certified Grief Coach, American Assoc. of Christian Counselors, a speaker, and a proud member of the National Grief & Hope Coalition.
