Morgan, David L.
Gerontologist, v29 n1 p101-07 Feb 1989
Examined positive and negative aspects of relations with friends and family among widows in focus-group discussions. Coded relationships mentioned as positive or negative. Approximately 40 percent of mentions were negative, with family members receiving more negative mentions. Non-family relations showed flexibility, with increases in positive relationships and decreases in negative ones. (Author/NB)
