Woman Says She Is ‘Trying To Navigate’ Grief For Family Members Who Died Of COVID-19 Complications
Kelly says that because of current restrictions limiting public gatherings for funerals and memorial services due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, she and her three children are having a difficult time grieving the deaths of Kelly’s brother, David, father, Lewis, and mother, Judith. All three died at the end of March due to complications from COVID-19.
“Thanks to technology, we’re able to text and call and Facetime,” she says, noting that her 25-year-old twin daughters don’t live at home. She says that as part of their grieving process, they have been listening to voicemails from their deceased family members.

Kelly’s husband, Don, who was also hospitalized with the disease as her parents and brother were dying, has since recovered.
