A message from The Widower's Journey author Herb Knoll:"Sometimes, you just need someone to talk things over with. This happened to me when my wife Michelle approached her final days. Phil Carbone – then of the Baltimore, Maryland area was the one I turned to at 3AM one morning in March of 2008. As I sat in my car in a hospital parking lot and in the middle of a driving rain storm I dialed Phil's number. Phil was an old colleague of mine from the early 80s who I hadn’t seen in over ten years. But Phil was the one gentlemen I wanted to speak with. Why? Because Phil would understand what I was going through. Phil was a recent widower."
"I was so grateful Phil answered the phone that rainy Texas night. I needed to talk with someone. I needed to cry with someone I trusted. God Bless Phil Carbone for caring."
