Surviving the Loss of a Spouse

Research in the late 1960s about the correlation between stress and illness showed the loss of a spouse to be the most stressful life event one can experience. Yet the realities of life mean it's something many of us will experience. What is the difference between those who experience a decline in their own health and happiness following the loss of a spouse, and those who are able to mourn, remember, and continue on? On Monday we'll speak to counselors and surviving spouses about coping with the loss of a life partner.
