| Welcome to the San Diego Widow or Widowers Club. WOW is an acronym formed from the letter of the words "Widows" or "Widowers." Every member has lost a partner to death. Like survivors of a shipwreck, we share a special bond, understanding the feeling of abandonment, uselessness and frustration. Every member of our club has experienced those same feelings. "We can relate to what you're going through; we have all been there."
WOW is an incredible support group. It serves this function by giving the recently grieved member understanding, social outlets, physical activities and camaraderie. As a non-profit social organization, Wow's purpose is to promote educational and social activities for members and by providing suitable ways for widows and widowers to meet others who have experienced the same loss. Initially, our lives have changed, replaced by a life living as a single party. Although the loss might have been expected, none of us are totally prepared for it. Often members have said that for a while after the death of their spouse, they drifted, living from day to day. When they discovered WOW, they found friendship and it was if a new vista had opened up for them, complete with family and friends. If you're ready to move on and want to add a little more socializing, enjoyment, participate in interesting activities to your routine, then perhaps WOW is the club for you.
