You'd think that in a city as big as Brookklyn, NY, there would certainly be a support group for younger widows and widowers! But, after 21 months of widowhood, all I have found, or been referred to, are groups for senior citizens. They're all lovely, great and active folks, but we are dealing with very different issues. One local church secretary actually told me to call the NYC Division on the Aging to find a grief support group for "people in my age bracket." Apparently, she thinks that widowhood only comes to seniors! I guess she's a lucky gal to not know that widowhood is "equal opportunity" and doesn't much care how old we are! Does anyone in this group know of any grief support groups for younger W/Ws in the NYC area? I appreciate any info you can give. Thanks.
