Ponte Vedra Support Group helps widows cope with grief

PONTE VEDRA BEACH — Over lunch recently, several women bonded over grief, anger, uncertainty about the future and the hole in their hearts.

They met in the reception room of a funeral home, but the location only heightened their connection. They were familiar with funeral homes.

“This is a new, unique sisterhood. A group of ladies who have lost our true loved ones,” said host Renee Williams, who recently organized Lilies of the Valley, a social support group for widows that meets monthly in Ponte Vedra Beach. She said it was the first of its kind in the Jacksonville area.

By the end of the lunch, they were exchanging email addresses, phone numbers and hugs.
