“[One Foot Forward] pairs compelling portraits of the bereaved with candid conversations about their journeys…to ease the loneliness of loss [Fox] sets out to capture the diversity of widowhood.” -AARP Blog

“The beautifully photographed faces are as expressive as the words”
-Chicago Tribune

“Although very few people are comfortable talking about end-of-life issues, death, and widowhood, Judith Fox searched for many answers…her book, One Foot Forward, explores death, widowhood, and moving on after a loved one’s death while offering hope, solace, and the knowledge that no one is alone.”
-Prime Time Radio

“Judith Fox’s book weaves together a beautiful quilt of individual stories that bring warmth to the cold, sad reality of death and dying. Her storytelling draws us in and her beautiful photographs capture a kaleidoscope of emotions. The universal message is that through grief, we must find hope to carry on. One Foot Forward is a must-read book as this will be a journey we will all take.”
-Sherri Snelling, CEO, Caregiving Club; author of A Cast of Caregivers

“Judith Fox has created a beautiful portrait of both love and loss in this unique collection of stories. The perfect blend of photographs and written words provides readers with a compelling glimpse into the experience of outliving the person with whom you imagined spending all of your days. Powerful, genuine, and meaningful.”
-Michele Neff Hernandez, Executive Director, Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation

One Foot Forward compassionately and skillfully combines the very personal experiences with the stunning images of the widows and widowers it portrays. Each story, with its companion photographs, is a gift. I highly recommend One Foot Forward to anyone who appreciates beauty and wants a better understanding of the human journey.”
-Richard D. Della Penna, MD, Geriatrician; Chief Medical Officer, Independa, Inc.

“The stories in One Foot Forward speak the language of loss, telling quiet secrets, those not often spoken. Listen to them closely and learn how people choose to welcome life again.”
-Marcia Lattanzi Licht, LHD, RN, LPC, Educator; author; psychotherapist
