|Safe Haven for Widowed was founded and developed by Bill Fyler on November 19, 2009 in remembrance of his wife, Terri L. Fyler, who passed away on December 26, 2008.
When someone dies close to us whether it is our Child, Spouse, Partner, Parent, Family Member or a Friend, our world turns upside down. Waves of emotion including sadness, loneliness, anger, yearning, and shock surge through us. Tasks that need to be accomplished feel insurmountable. We become exhausted at times and restless at others. We experience a sense of disbelief and ask ourselves, “How can this be real?”
Grief is challenging and takes many forms. It can be overwhelming physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Perhaps you are sleeping more than usual or find that you are unable to fall or stay asleep. You notice changes in your appetite. Along with a rollercoaster of emotions, thoughts and memories are unexpectedly triggered. Spiritual questions may arise.
Bill wanted those who have suffered the loss of a loved one to receive support and know that they do not have to travel this road alone. That there are others that understand and are ready to help navigate this road they find themselves on. As they move along their journey towards hope and healing, being with others who are experiencing what they are provides comfort and support.
