Living Again: A Personal Journey for Surviving
the Loss of a Spouse
Throughout our lives we have known that none of us are immortal. Yet as married couples
we spend a significant part of our time together planning for the future, "our retirement
together to the rocking chairs on the front porch". The death of a spouse causes dramatic
and immediate changes to the life of the surviving spouse, and many times threatens the
very fabric of their existence. This person with whom you have built your life is gone
and as the surviving spouse you are left to put the pieces of your life back together.
On February 26, 1995 William Wallace became one of the thousands of people in the United
States who each year become surviving spouses. In Living Again he uses this experience to
guide the reader through the maze of uncertainty and pain that surrounds grief recovery,
to the ultimate goal of again living a full and richly rewarding life. Short, and to the
point, Living Again is a passionate, heartfelt description of the personal journey each
survivor must make, and is filled with stories of the author's mistakes and successes. This
book is for those who have recently lost a spouse or their death appears imminent and provides
a better understanding of what you can expect on the journey through grief.
