Here in Austin we have a wonderful support group for recent widows/widowers called For Love of Christi.
The name comes from a teenage girl who was killed by a drunk driver several years ago, and the group was established by her family.
I attended the group when my husband first passed away and found a great deal of support and solace there.
The group had a complete library on grief, death and dying and subjects relative to the process of losing a loved one.
In an era where widows/widowers groups can be exploitative, For Love of Christi was a refreshing lighthouse during the dark days of my DH's passing.
We greeted the group with the same greeting, "I'm Cat and I'm here for the love of Quincy." Then I had a few minutes to discuss whatever I wanted to relevant to my situation.
