More than a week after losing her beloved husband, Sheryl Sandberg took to Facebook to express her continued grief over becoming part of a “club that no one wants to join.”
Dave Goldberg died of head trauma on May 1 after he slipped and fell on a treadmill while on vacation with his family. He was just 47.
Writing on her Facebook page Monday, Sandberg linked to a Huffington Post story by Laura Wellington about women who became widows at a young age.
“Laura Wellington is right – this is a club that no one wants to join,” Sandberg wrote. “Laura, I am sorry for your loss – and my heart goes out to the many women around the world who have experienced this loss too.
She added: “I learned from your advice and I am sharing it here so others can learn too. My condolences to you – and my gratitude.”
Sandberg, 45, will resume her duties with Facebook this week, working on a modified schedule. She has also temporarily suspended work travel and will only work during the hours her children are in school.
