As a pastor for over 70 years, I have gone through grief with hundreds of people. Then, at age 88, it was my turn to personally experience the pain, confusion and loneliness that accompanies the suffering and death of one’s spouse.

Author Walter Albritton shares the touching story of his recovery after the death of his wife in Fighting Grief, Finding Peace: One Man’s Journey Through the Valley of Pain($14.49, paperback, 9781662850196).
He was alone, after 68 years of companionship. He didn’t want her to suffer, but he didn’t know how to go on without her either. As an experienced minister, Albritton knew all the counselors say to grieving spouses, but only his relationship with his Savior could carry him this time.
“As a pastor for over 70 years, I have gone through grief with hundreds of people. Then, at age 88, it’s my turn to personally experience the pain, confusion and loneliness that comes with the suffering and death of her spouse,” Albritton said.
