My family recently lost two amazing people due to Covid-19.
In August we learned that my husband’s cousin and her husband were being admitted to the hospital because of covid complications.
Not even a month later they both were taken away from us.
The pain was unreal, like we were living a nightmare.
Anger set in and the whys. Why did they have to die? Why did this virus have to take them away from us?
I cried for days, until I learned to deal with my grief.
I sat and thought about how blessed I was to have had them both in my life for 20 years.
I thought about all the special memories I was lucky enough to get to share with them.
Most importantly I thought about all the wonderful things this amazing couple taught me.
I would like to share what I learned having these incredible people in my life.
Susie taught me to let the people I love know how much I love them. Susie was the most loving person I have ever met. She would let everyone know how much she loved them and how special they were to her.
Terry taught me unconditional love for your spouse. He loved Susie so much and stood by her side through thick and thin.
They both taught me to be spontaneous and to live life to the fullest. They always had so much fun, no matter what they were doing.
Susie taught me to help others in need and to be kind to everyone. Susie would help anyone in need and she could have hour long conversations with people she didn’t even know.
They both taught me to be a better person and a better Christian.
I am a better person having known them and I am beyond blessed to get to say they loved and cared about me.
I am grateful for every minute I got to share with them and all the laughter we once shared.
The sadness is still there but I know they are together in Heaven, rejoicing with the Lord.
The pain doesn’t just go away, but celebrating their lives and remembering all they passed on to me and my family, has helped me through the grieving stage.
I would like to honor them by letting you all know that COVID-19 IS REAL! If you don’t believe in getting vaccinated, please don’t judge people who do choose to get vaccinated. Please don’t hinder people’s choice in getting the vaccination.
Think of other’s feelings that have lost loved ones to this senseless virus before you say hurtful things about the vaccine or wearing masks.
Stay safe out there, and pray for the ones fighting this virus and the ones dealing with the grief of losing their loved ones.
