In this episode, Laura talks with Peter Lichtenberg, a geriatric neuropsychologist whose insights have been gleaned not only from his work, but also from tragic personal experience. Then she meets Inge, whose spouse’s death freed her to accept who she’s been all along.
Laura also catches up with twice-widowed Mark (long-time listeners will remember him from Season 1) to find out what happened after she took the suggestion of a listener and introduced him to Evamarie, another Season 1 guest.
Finally, widow Lidia and Adam discover that sometimes, new love is literally right around the corner.
