On grief talk with Audrey, I bring you experts in the fields of death and dying, grief and loss, hope and healing and those who have themselves been on their own grief journey, to share their experiences and skills to help my listeners.
Forced to remake her life after the death of her husband, Becky Aikman gathered five other young widows like herself and took a forthright approach to finding happiness again.
