“Finally! A practical and compassionate road map for the widowed! Master story crafter Todd delivers a generous and honest tour de force in this thoughtful weave from the pieces of her own journey out of unapologetic heartbreak into the new season of life after loss, a pathway of hope.”
Rev. Cynthia Park, Ph.D., LPC


“In Navigating Loss, Donna Marie Todd accompanies the reader through grief’s physical and emotional challenges, financial and medical issues, practical approaches to memorializing a loved one, and even dating and remarriage. She writes in a style that helps the bereaved person express himself or herself in unique ways that are both healing and constructive.
 
As a former widow and current palliative care physician,  I affirm the selection of topics and their thoughtful exploration.
Patricia Shearer, MD, MS, Pediatric Oncologist and Pallative Care Physician

“Donna Marie Todd has provided an insightful and practical road map of the widowed’s journey of grief.  She touches on a variety of key dimensions of those early months of shock, heart-brokenness and disorientation.   She leads grievers through helpful, data-based practices such as: creating a “grief container”, feeling safe again, legal/financial advice, nutrition, surviving the holidays, the impact of stress on one’s health, and even dating and remarriage.
 
Todd also weaves stories and anecdotes from her own widowhood throughout the guide. These stories are appropriately shared, and help make the aspects of the journey accessible and workable.
 
This is a solid resource. I give it my highest recommendation.”
