The Widow Lady: Turning Lemons into Lemonade

Widows can also be exploited financially and sexually. "I tell people that you have to learn how to say no and you have to understand that it's OK to say no and to trust your instincts. If you're in someone's presence and it doesn't feel right then just simply leave. Don't let people coerce you into doing things that are uncomfortable," she warned.

Craig is not sure where she will be in 10 years. Widowhood is a journey, and those who are strong will make it through. "I tell everybody that adversity comes in a lot of forms and we don't know how it's going to come or when it's going to come but we can always turn our lemons into lemonade and that's basically what I've done with my mission to help the widows," she said.

After her husband's death, Craig went on to win three daytime Emmy Awards for her work on the Court TV programs. "When you do have intense adversity you can still prevail and you can move forward and you can be the best at whatever is accorded to you."
