I am happily remarried since 2012 but was widowed in 2008. There is nothing like the grief one experiences after a life partner passes away. When I lost my first husband, I searched for books and articles addressing this particular loss- I was looking for ideas on coping techniques from others who'd had that experience. There wasn't much. I meet with widows and widowers of all ages, gay and straight, having been in legal marriages or committed partnerships. We have a conversation, and make a portrait. This process is emotionally satisfying for me and my sitters as well, as they tell me. I hope that by sharing their stories, those suffering this profound loss - whether recently or not -  will take comfort in recognition and shared experience.
