Informational and inspirational articles free in online April edition of Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er's Journey
East Lyme, Conn.— When Dr. Joanne Z. Moore lost her husband, she found very little long-term support. After listening to the stories of others who found a way to move forward, Moore founded the magazine, Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey, to support those who strive to live joyful and meaningful lives after loss.
Joanne Z. Moore, PT, DHSc, a physical therapist from East Lyme, Connecticut, became a widow in 2009 after 37 years of marriage. She is using her husband’s life insurance to invest in the lives of others through the magazine. She said, “Pathfinder gives ideas to those who must follow a new life path. Friends and family of the widowed also benefit from Pathfinder because they want to know how to best support them. This magazine helps listeners be more comfortable as they provide condolences.”
The April issue of Pathfinder, which has been made free this month, features how actor George Burns moved forward after Gracie died (and the secret he finally revealed to the public), recipes for cooking solo, and how the expressive arts help children and adults process grief. Articles also include:
