Welcome to Living. Good. Grief. A blog that details a journey in loss and the living that comes afterwards.

My name is Jen and I lost my husband Tony to Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Cancer in March of 2019. We have two beautiful and amazing children. I hope to use this blog to help myself and share with others – what is working and not working for me as I lay the foundation to a future much different than I had ever imagined.

I enjoy writing and it’s always been a dream of mine to be a writer of some sort. While I wish the topic was different, for now, these are the words that flow the easiest. I’ve already learned in these few short months that I do best when I lean in to whatever emotions this enormous loss brings. To embrace the ugly times so that I can appreciate the good ones.

Whether you know me personally or have found me somehow through the world of social media, I appreciate your time and allowing me to share with you. I’m looking forward to having this place to come to. Thank you!

Love,

Jen

  3. Jen, I too appreciate your ability to share on here. So much of what you are saying hits home to me. I lost my husband of 28 years on Jan 22, 2019 after 20 months of battling sarcomatoid carsanoma, a rare bone cancer that had no known origin. We got to have 4 beautiful kids together and I now have 2 awesome daughter in laws. I have a 15 year old and a 13 year old at home. I am 48. My greatest struggle right now is navigating loneliness even though I have tons of family and friends.

    1. I am so sorry for your loss, Lora. I agree that the loneliness is the worst – for me, all the rest is just details. I just miss my husband. Sending love to you!
