About us MEET KELLY
On September 18, 2015 at 11:11 PM time of death was called for my truest love and, in ways I hadn’t yet begun to understand, my life and the lives of my children changed forever.
The process navigating the hundreds of tasks, arrangements, and accounts was overwhelming in the midst of my grief.
I created SoloSpouse to not only help others navigate that incredibly difficult time but also realize what I’m still learning…
…Our most traumatic losses can create spectacular growth and strength.
