Facebook's second-in-command Sheryl Sandberg has shared an open letter thanking her fiance Tom Bernthal for helping her find love again after the death of her husband. Sheryl Sandberg's husband, Dave Goldberg, died suddenly in 2015. He was 48.
"When I lost Dave in 2015, my whole world turned upside down," Ms Sandberg, 51, wrote in an Instagram post in which she revealed she had penned an open letter to her fiance in Good Housekeeping. "I really wasn't sure I could ever devote my heart to another person like that," she confessed.
"Everything changed" for the Facebook operations chief when her late husband's brother, Rob, introduced her to his friend Tom Bernthal.
"Today, I'm sharing an open love letter to my fiance in @goodhousekeeping," wrote Sheryl Sandberg. "With Tom, I learned that Option B can be filled with profound joy. Together with our blended family, we have found a new path forward, one filled with so much gratitude and optimism."
