About the Book

When death knocked at their doors, their husbands departed, and they realized the true meaning of those words they all had uttered, “Till death do us part.” Gone from Our Sight offers a personal and engaging collection of reflections from widows who loved their husbands and now share their personal memories.

The stories, all anonymous, discuss the death of partners from a variety of walks of life and from an array of causes, via pneumonia, heart attacks, suicide, renal cell carcinoma with metastasis to the liver, hypertension, edema, congested heart failures, prostate cancer, diabetes, lung cancer, and acute myeloid leukemia with cellulitis. Honest and heartfelt, each widow shares her truth regarding diagnosis, family, funerals, emotions, and recovery. They provide a glimpse into their challenges.

The book not only provides personal accounts, but practical and spiritual lessons learned while experiencing the loss of a spouse. The authors invite others to take from their experiences, prepare, be encouraged, grieve without shame, and learn to be joyful.

About the Author

Are you curious or wonder what you would encounter when your mate dies? What would you do? Young or old, widows known to us, did not discuss personal details of their husbands’ death. We decided to be different and publicly share personal details and our innermost thoughts. We decided to talk. Before we shared with one another, we believed our thoughts, dreams, and behaviors were abnormal or weird.
