Guests: Jeff Hill, PhD, Professor, School of Family Life, BYU; Andy Bay, Alumni Communications Manager, BYU; Amy Teemant, homemaker; Justin Yopp, PhD, clinical psychologist and an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine   Finding love after loss is Top of Mind this hour. BYU family life professor Jeff Hill and his wife Juanita had eight children when she died of cancer in 2005. A year later he met Tammy Mulford, and they soon became a combined family of twelve children.  In late 2014, BYU Alumni Communications Manager Andy Bay lost his wife, Ana Preto-Bay, suddenly to causes that never could be explained, leaving him a widowed father of four. A neighbor of his and mother of three, Amy Teemant, had lost her husband Leo to melanoma less than a year before. Andy and Amy eventually began dating and have been married for a year and a half.  Though both couples have found love again, they, and their kids, have traveled a long road of adjustments. Jeff, Andy and Amy join us now in studio to share their stories of losing a spouse and finding new love. Tammy was unable to be here in person, so we’ll rely on Jeff to tell her story.
