Boy meets girl

This longtime member’s spouse just passed away. So did his. But through their grief, they both reached out. Now what?

Mark and I are the surviving sober spouses of long-term marriages of the “till death do us part” sort. Our spouses died 30 days from each other after having lost their respective fights with cancer. We both have daughters born in 1996 who graduated from the same high school in the same year.
