The sense of loss that comes with the death of a spouse is an unimaginable experience. Feelings of shock, guilt, loneliness, and deep depression are common, but there are steps people can take to begin to build a new life. One can only image how Iman, the wife of rock icon David Bowie, must be feeling after losing her spouse of 24 years to cancer. Compounding her grief is the worldwide media attention on her and her family.
