The Ripple Effect

Rebecca Soffer

Rebecca Soffer and her partner founded Modern Loss on the hunch that other people needed just what they did – a forum in which to bond over the full and candid experience of grieving. Having just returned from a national book tour, Soffer shares stories of the authentic, empowering, and often unexpected connections and opportunities that transcend distance and differences through the universal human experience of life after loss.
