I miss the old me

Speaker: Michele Neff Hernandez

Grief changes us, often without our permission. Where did my memory go? Why can't I concentrate? Will I ever feel like myself again?

Join Soaring Spirits International founder, Michele Neff Hernandez, to discuss the emotional, mental and physical changes that accompany widowhood and to find hope that you can miss the old you while learning to appreciate and respect today's you.
