Keeping Your Sense of Humor Behind The Black Veil

While the prevailing widowhood wisdom seems to hold that grief is not a laughing matter, we believe that humor can not only relieve some of the pain, but is inevitable. (Did you see what Aunt Doris wore to Grandma's wake? How can we not laugh at that?) Author Leslie Gray Streeter discusses how an organic awareness of humor can help with healing.
