“Legal and financial moves to take care of yourself and your loved ones.”
by Anna Byrne
“Nothing quite prepares you for the dark and debilitating grief of losing a spouse or life partner. The beginning of every widow or widower’s journey is about picking up the pieces and finding the strength to keep going even when your ‘other half’ has passed.
“I know firsthand the kind of extreme sadness that can overwhelm you, as I became a widow after losing my husband when I was just 28.
“This life experience taught me that life is unpredictable, underscored the importance of planning for the future and has inspired me to help others plan and navigate such loss.
“The first year of being a widow or widower is about living in memory of a loved one, but the next chapter is about remembering to live your own life.”
