Meetup for Coffee
When ever you meet up with someone for coffee, most of the time it’s NOT just about the coffee it is about the conversations that happen over that cup of coffee.
For those who are married, their spouse is typically their closest relationship. As a widower, I am intimately aware of the impact the loss of this relationship has, and the need to stay connected to others during and after those difficult times. One way to do that is to meetup for coffee with a friend.
After losing my wife, one of my best friendships I have today started with a conversation over a cup of coffee. That friend is one who has walked along side of me during the worst part of my life.
To support those who have lost their partner, I have started Meet Up For Coffee. We encourage friends and acquaintances of those who lost their spouses to, well, invite them to coffee! At the same time we also want to encourage widows and widowers to take the first step and invite a friend (or friends!) out for coffee.
Due to the large number of request there is a group meetup that has developed. It is about connecting with other widows and widowers. I have found comfort in talking with others who have also experience a loss of a spouse. You can get on the email distribution list for when the group is meeting next by adding your contact information below.
Please let us know if you are interested in a group meetup for coffee, your thoughts, your questions, your feedback, your story, or how you might be able to help us.
