Found out today a friend died from Covid...

She was also a member of the Democratic Action Team that I volunteer for. Her name was Cindy and she was 30 years old with a husband and 3 young children. My ex-daughter-law held her hand as she died. My dil regularly works the NICU but itís all hands on deck for the Covid areas in the hospital she works at. Even the cafeteria is bed filled....
Now these 2 have been exposed again, for the 2nd time....my son is trying to get the courts to award him temporary full custody until this has passed.....

2. So sorry for your loss. I did too.

His name was Matthew and in his latter 40's.

We are going to lose more than friends if people ate not careful. 6 feet apart or 6 feet under.

That's really awful.

We found out yesterday of the first coronavirus deaths of people we knew as well. It really brought it home in a way the numbers on worldometer can't.

22. I am so sorry!

How sad! She was so young and with three young children. It's not fair. It makes me even angrier that there are people out there who are protesting their local governments about shutting down non-essential businesses and stay-at-home orders. This is not a game! It is deadly serious.

My condolences to you and to the young woman's family.

And I am sorry your son and ex daughter in law donít have a good enough relationship to determine the best path for your grandsons while she is putting her life on the line at the hospital. I sure hope it works out.

29. Both those kids are old enough to remember this

for the rest of their lives. Itís heartbreaking. Itís so hard and unfair for young people, especially young parents to die. Itís just not tight.
