Are There Any Support Groups for Grieving Spouses in Southern New Jersey?

Question by susieq23: Are there any support groups for grieving spouses in Southern New Jersey?
My husband died almost two years ago and I am still having a difficult time adjusting. I thought perhaps a support group might help me get through the process. It bothers me when widows of deceased spouses of less than a year are dating. I have no idea how to move on. I have become somewhat of a recluse, withdrawn, and a prisoner in my own home. How do I get through this? All my friends have moved on with their lives and spouses or significant others and no longer have time for me. The category of my question is not only love and romance, but friends and family, as well as singles (widows) and dating. HELP!
