Laura and Richard  
 

Laura and her husband, Richard, on our wedding day …
August 8, 1987

 
 

Grieving, while messy, can be transformative. I have chronicled my process in 13 letters written to Laura on significant dates after her death. I used journals as source material to document my evolution from sadness and anger to acceptance and the motivation to power forward.
