Abstract: 

This publication is a collection of observations and insights I that we hope will be useful to individual widows and their support I groups across the province and the country. It is not our intent to duplicate the many excellent resource materials for widows produced in recent years, but rather to applaud the ones we have discovered and to offer the reader a flavour of the groups on the West Coast of British Columbia. The pages that follow incorporate a wealth of information from a variety of different sources: (1) results from the research literature; (2) informal comments at Board meetings and the Conference; (3) results of formal and informal evaluation procedures; (4) summaries of the conference addresses and workshops; and (5) an inspirational address a message from the President of the Board. Our purpose in filling these pages is to provide further evidence of the effectiveness of widows' support, the strength of our common bond, and the uniqueness of each group experience. We hope our story will give you courage to face the future and inspire you to Join a group that will meet your needs, to inject new enthusiasm into the group to which you already belong, or to start a group yourself.
