John Hutzelman, who retired from the US Navy and worked as a senior recruiter before losing his wife of forty years, has completed his new book “A Widower’s Passage: A Widower’s Journey through the First Year”: a profoundly helpful book that dethrones myths about grief to help a man through his most difficult journey.

Author Hutzelman writes to the widower who is often swept under the rug, but in a pinch his hard-won wisdom reaches out to anyone suffering a traumatic loss: “You’ve suffered one of the greatest losses anyone has to experience—the loss of a loved one. Your life is in a shambles, and it feels as if part of you has died, too. It is only natural for your only response right now is to grieve. But society pressures you not to because it is considered abnormal and a sign of weakness, especially in men. But the thing is, because we are human, it is only natural for us to grieve as a result of being deeply affected by our loss. And grief is necessary, it provides a healthy way for us to cope with the loss and everything it means to us personally, and avoiding it only makes it last longer and potentially cause more pain.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, John Hutzelman’s new book is a potent salve and instructor, covering such critical concepts as the stages of loss, grief myths, how to deal with special occasions, notes about counseling and recovery groups, as well as moving anecdotes of the author’s own tragedy—all of which goes to tell a widower “You are not alone.”

Readers who wish to experience this important work can purchase“A Widower’s Passage” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
