 "Why is this happening to me?  When will I stop hurting? How long do I cry? Does anyone understand how I feel? Will I ever feel whole again?"  

 

Perhaps these questions sound familiar to you. If so, you are not alone. The death of a spouse is a very traumatic experience. Grief is a process that we cannot avoid. Our ten weeks together will give you not only an opportunity to understand your reactions to your spouse's death, but will also the process of grieving and healing.  Unless you allow your feelings to be honestly and fully felt, you cannot effectively walk through the grief process.

 

While there is no simple answer to your adjustment to your spouse's death, we care about you and our desire is that WidowedCare will be a help to you as you work through the grief process.  

 

For more detailed information about WidowedCare, please contact Sharon Crigger-Stokan.

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

Why is this happening to me?

Oh, God how can I endure this pain?

When will I stop hurting?

How long do I cry?

Does anyone understand how I feel?

Why Lord, why?

Will I ever feel whole again?

GROUP FACILITATOR

 

SHARON CRIGGER-STOKAN  was widowed in 1988 at the age of 39.  She, and her first husband, Jim Crigger, who died after a 10 year illness at age  39, were married for 19 years.  Following Jim’s death, Sharon was faced with the task of being a single mom to two, then teenage, sons. 

 

Sharon’s sensitivity to those in the grieving process comes from her personal experience of putting her life back together after Jim’s death.  It was out of the aloneness and despair she felt that she became involved with the widowed ministry at Colonial Woods Missionary Church.  Sharon has previously led a young widowed support group and co-led grief groups.  She started WidowedCare in 1996.

 

In 1994 Sharon married Mack Stokan.  Her two sons are married; she has three  granddaughters, and two grandsons, two step-daughters and five step-grandchildren.

 

In addition to being  the WidowedCare Facilitator, Sharon works part-time as the Bookkeeper at Colonial Woods Missionary Church.
