Author Stacy Feintuch

Stacy was a stay-at-home mom/part-time preschool teacher whose life was turned upside down in 2011 when her husband passed away suddenly of a heart attack.  She is raising her two fabulous daughters, now ages 18 and 20, who are turning into wonderful young women.  In 2016, she started a blog about her experience as a young widow, The Widow Wears Pink. This led her to write for other publications including Huffington Post,, Scary Mommy, Grown & Flown, Kveller, Modern Loss, Thought Catalog, and many more. In 2018 she started Living the Second Act with fellow writer Mimi Golub. Today, Stacy and her daughters  are happily living their "new normal" while always keeping her husband's spirit alive.

Sometimes I Stress

What if I handle something incorrectly? What if I make the wrong decision?  There will be no one to share the blame with. This is very stressful.

Celebrity Deaths

More recently, Prince and David Bowie both passed away. Again, icons that I grew up with, music that is such a part of my life. I was very sad about both.

The death of David Bowie hit me in a different way.

I Had A Bad Day

Of course I do not expect to wake up with a huge smile on my face every day but when that old panicky feeling comes back, it is horrible. Once it happens, it is hard to shake for the whole day.
