Lost My Uncle to COVID

Got the news late last night that my 90 year old uncle passed away in the nursing home in quarantine, on a ventilator, from COVID. I had a feeling all week he was declining. The nurses stopped giving me information a few days ago. I was never added to the call list. Another issue I have been dealing with. 

I have called all week, held for up to 30 minutes each time, waiting on updates about his condition. Something told me to keep calling. So I did. Finally at 11:00 pm last night I got a nurse to tell me he had passed just 10 minutes before I called. 

I stayed out on my deck last night until after midnight staring at the full moon. A few clouds. Then it was like all of a sudden, the clouds left and I could see the bright moon shining. I snapped this photo with my phone. 

Not as good as what I witnessed but it was very peaceful and comforting. He is at peace now. 

  • Never take those around you for granted, right?

    • Yes

  1. I’m sorry for your loss.
    At least he is free from the suffering now.
    He is at a better and peaceful place now,
    watching over you and your family.

    Perhaps he is with Dustin, having a nice chat.

  2. I am so sorry to hear this Carol. I am worried also about my favorite aunt who is 92 years old. At least she still lives in her house and her daughter brings her groceries etc. Again sorry for your loss… but the moonlight is appeasing….
