Jean Halberstam (Mrs. David Halberstam)

"I cannot tell you how rich and privileged a life it has been, and I hope you will each have a comparable one." --David Halberstam
Welcome famous widow, Jean Halberstam, wife of famous journalist, David Halberstam, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer who chronicled the Vietnam War generation, civil rights and the world of sports.
David Halberstam was killed in a car crash on Monday. He was 73.

Mourning Joy:

After hearing that one of the patients in a mental hospital had saved another from a suicide attempt by pulling him out of a bathtub, the hospital director reviewed the rescuer's file and called him into his office.
"Mr. Haroldson, your records and your heroic behavior indicate that you're ready to go home.
I'm only sorry that the man you saved later killed himself with a rope around the neck."
"Oh, he didn't kill himself," Mr. Haroldson replied. "I hung him up to dry."

Mourning Quote:

"You don't want to be miserable your whole life." --Betty Rollin

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Write something. Go ahead. I dare you.
Have a joy-filled day, Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
