Good-bye to a loved one in COVID era
« on: July 15, 2020, 12:55:01 am »
One of the very difficult things for many people has been the need for patients to be totally isolated, so family or friends couldn't visit them at the hospital or nursing care center. Thousands of people passed with only the medical staff there, & then their families couldn't have regular funerals or other after-death rituals that are important for many people. The lack of a funeral was true of anyone who recently died, but might have been especially hard for those who had no chance to be with their loved ones at the end.

Here is a story that is sad but also beautiful, about a couple who lost one of their most loved friends but were able to spend her last minutes with her, take her home, & give her a burial in their own way. If it makes you both cry & smile, that's quite understandable.
