Good Grief: Why Am I Laughing At A Time Like This?

Grieving can’t be laughed away.  But finding  humor during the grieving process can give us a needed vacation from the trenches of grief and hope that life goes on.

Pat, who lost her husband in May 2009, will show how the techniques she used for finding humor in an overbooked life can also help find humor in times of loss.

For nearly a decade she’s chronicled her own travails in her regular humor column, Balancing Act. Looking for the light, ironic side of life has honed her humor-finding skills and helped her survive everything from her mom’s declining health and husband’s long-term illness to the ups and downs of practicing law and raising kids.
