An indirect casualty of Covid


As you all know in this last year both my brother and my sister passed from Covid. Since my brother's passing his wife Mary, of 62 years lost her will to live. The fact that she could not touch or talk to her husband for 3 months before his death weighed heavily on her mind. She could only view him through a window. Her refuge was a slow decline into dementia. Her only wish was to be with him in the here after. She got her wish on May 3rd. As her caregiver and her sister held her hands she opened her eyes and said "I see him" then she took her last breathe. Her circle of life was complete. I will miss her every day. She was like a sister to me. She was beautiful inside and out. She was kind, compassionate, giving and loving.
