In the aftermath of losing her husband, Barb Pekich shares the importance of visiting the site of his car crash with her friend, Andy. Andy was with her as she combed through the wreckage, and Andy was there 11 months later when Barb visited the same site, ready to embrace new hope in her life. It took a year before Barb was ready to start moving on with vision for herself and her family. Through it all, Andy’s steady presence with Barb was far more important than any words.
How can you be a constant friend in the midst of another’s loss?
