I met Carol at Camp Widow where she graciously volunteered to speak to other widows about her story. She was well received and she took a minute to give me an on camera interview (coming soon).
Carol is so fun and easy to talk to and I just had to get her to do a podcast with me. I love her use of humor to discuss the rough subject of the loss and grief of losing your spouse, but she is never disrespectful and I believe she gives to others what she calls grief relief.
Thank you Carol for a great interview and for all that you do. – JW
