When it comes to death, dying and grieving, it seems that most people do their grieving in private. But what if you are in the public eye? How does grieving affect you then? It can be very complex and very challenging.
For the next few weeks I am going to be talking to some people who are public figures in their communities, most of whom I have known through the years from our time together in the TV biz.
The conversations are quite interesting because the way in which we deal with grief, handle the pain, and process it are all so different and yet if you look back at how you moved through, most all can say it changed us profoundly.
In this episode, popular Dallas TV personality Ron Corning sat down with me to talk about the recent death of his mother, and the horrific death of a dear friend and co-worker.
He says all of it not only made him a better person, but he also feels it made him a better reporter. I think you will be fascinated with our conversation. I know I was.
