My father born 10/11/48 grew up on long Island ny. He was a Corpsman in Vietnam. He came home thankfully and started his career in Respiratory therapy as a therapist. He worked at a local hospital for 35 years. Sadly he caught the virus and found himself at that same hospital now as a patient. On 4/14/2020 he passed away devastating many coworkers and friends and family and ME. He was my best friend my father my therapist my bank my problem solver my protector. My life will never be same. We are yet to be able to have a proper funeral that my brother resides in Florida. He can’t properly enter the state without quarantine which is not possible with his work schedule. Covid has changed my world in ways I never imagined.
