Ladies and Gentleman,

I know many of our FF travel in groups from the same
area. If you haven’t already call a fellow spouse or
SO who has been left home and had them over for
dinner, do so soon. After all who better to share your
evening with than a spouse or SO who is going through
the same thing.

Last week a fellow fire widow had me over just before
her FF returned. I couldn’t repay her immediately
for the favor because she needed time with her FF.
However, I knew of at least 3-4 other fire spouses and
SOs who are with out their FF right now. Tomorrow I’m
having a woman I have never met over for dinner. I
had such a great time last week with another fire
widow and this week I’m looking forward to another
evening with another adult!

Only WE know what WE are going through. So if you
know you’re not alone but you haven’t met the others who
are sitting at home –see if you can call the station
or the dispatcher and ask someone over. You just
might help them through a really difficult time :)
