About the Diary
“A must read for those who want to understand how men and children grieve.” (Bereavement specialist Riet Fiddelaers)
Diary of a Widower describes the first year after American born Jennifer, mother to two young boys, died at the age of 41. This blog was launched on November 2, 2012, exactly three years after the first entry and will provide the almost daily diary entries by her husband.
Author Tim Overdiek is a journalist from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where he lives with his sons Sander and Eamonn. For more background, please click on Introduction above, for the first chapter in the diary. It has been translated from Dutch. See for more information (in Dutch): tranenvanliefde
Also, read the Accident entry (see above), which will tell you about the week that ended family life as they knew it, and that started that first year without her.
