Welcome to My Stay Close Blog

Welcome to my Stay Close blog.

In this blog, I share my insights from a journey into the deepest heart of love, loss and grief. That journey has lasted over four years and continues, although I can happily report that my life is softening, and my most acute grief is resolving.

Here I share the contents of a book that I wrote following the sudden death of my husband and soul partner, Karl Langheinrich, in February 2016.

My intention in writing my recently published book, Stay Close: How to Heal from Grief and Keep Connected to One Who Has Died, is to help others as I healed my own shock, grief and loss.

My book outlines a healing model that really truly works! I have shared its contents with many grieving people and have experienced profound healing by doing the exercises in the book and in this blog.

I love Karl with all my heart. Ours is a remarkable relationship. And what is even more remarkable is that our communication continues after Karl’s death.

The posts in this blog

I have blogged the whole Stay Close book, in the order of the chapters I have written. There are a total of 168 blogs.

This is my personal endeavor that I am undertaking to share what I have learned. I want to shine my particular light into what to me, at times, seemed like impenetrable darkness – the darkness of loss and grief.

I want to sing my song and tell my story boldly. And I want to dream my dream that my hurts will be healed. I want to affirm that healing is possible. That it is possible for all of us who were so shattered by Karl’s sudden, violent and untimely death.

And I want to affirm that love endures. And that there is life after loss.

I pray that my story will be healing and life-affirming for others.

Like the poet Mark Nepo, who survived cancer to go on to focus on healing in his writing, I was not saved to be untouched. This experience has changed me — and for the better. Healing from loss can be a life-changing and life-enhancing experience.
