Introducing Pathfinder - A Companion Guide to the Widow/er’s Journey


PathfinderJust as no two people are alike, we recognize that no two marriages are alike. The only thing that binds us together is that we have all lost a spouse. We are otherwise a true cross section of America. We come from all backgrounds, and have unique dreams for our futures. By listening to each other, we find bits of inspiration to become creative as we forge our own new path. This magazine provides opportunities to learn from each other, to become enabled, and to share our experiences.
