Moving and inspirational. A beacon of hope for anyone struggling with grief. Karen Trench shares a heartfelt story of recovery from the shocking and traumatic loss of lifelong love.
In the Spring of 2015, Karen Trench was enjoying life as a happily married wife to a charming, loving, and supportive husband. From the outside looking in, most would agree that Karen was truly living the 'good life', complete with a home in the Colorado Rockies and a loving partnership that knew no boundaries.

In the hours, days, and months that followed Charlie's death, Karen found herself awash in a sea of emotional struggles that tested her resolve like nothing she had ever faced before.
