Losing a loved one was not something new to Fred Colby. However, the death of his father and stepfather at a young age did not prepare Fred for the pain and emotional turmoil he suffered when his wife of 42 years, Theresa, died after a yearlong bout with uterine cancer. His therapist challenged him to put his grief and lessons-learned into words to help others going through the same hell-on-earth experience. Though he has extensive professional writing experience, Widower to Widower is his first book. For more information, go to
