Issues with dating widows
Amy serves on the advisory board of Soaring Spirits International, a nonprofit organization that provides support for widowed people around the globe.
A few were widowed only weeks before they came; for others, it had been months or years.
With a style that combines grace, good-natured humor and rock solid science, Amy travels the country teaching financial advisors and other business professionals how to better serve clients experiencing loss, grief, and transition.
She also educates clergy, hospice staff and volunteers, social workers and others who work with the grieving.
Some had young children, including one man whose wife died in her seventh month of pregnancy but whose daughter survived.
Many had older kids or adult children, while others had no children at all.
