My dad was diagnosed on July 4th. He fought hard but succumbed to COVID-19 on July 22. My mom, brother and I went to the hospital to find him in his room in ICU completely awake and aware he was going to die. He couldn’t talk but the nurse took a phone to him so we could tell him we loved him, and we waved goodbye to each other. He passed away just over an hour after we left the hospital. We weren’t able to have a proper funeral, this loss has been so hard on our family.
