Anita and Mel are two young widows who grew up six houses away from each other, but never connected until their husbands died. Stupid death!
After becoming friends and supporting each other through the crazy roller coaster called grief, they started referring to one another as "widow wife."
While trying to figure out what "to do" with their grief , they landed on creating a podcast. And while the podcast is grief themed with real and authentic experiences, surprisingly, it's not a total downer!
Mel is a professional musician, a jazz pianist. She has toured the world and can name drop with the best of them. Her hair is a her signature and you're never quite sure what color it will be. She has been a widow since November 6, 2017. Her husband Scott died unexpectedly after a tonsillectomy. #Deathbytonsillectomy. She is a rabid dog mommy to Scotty, Finn and Jersey.
Anita is a mom to 4 human children ages 4-14. She is also a "medical professional," a physical therapist.
