Kelli’s Story: “My Husband’s Death Gave Me A New Lease On Life”

After her husband's death, the hardest part was telling her children that their father was gone. As time went on, though, she somehow picked herself up and got on with her life. She says it's hard to remember the woman she was before her loss. How did she do it?
