The nurse set up a computer in her room yesterday and her husband, son, my wife and a grandaughter all got to see and speak to her on Zoom. She was unresponsive though. Hopefully, she heard the expressions of love at some level.
Clearly she has the virus. On morphine. Just waiting for the end, it appears.
We don't have the results yet, but it appears to have been the virus. Symptoms consistent and they already had it reported at the facility.
We didn't always see eye to eye, but I respected her as a strong, intelligent and kind woman. It has been a while since she was that person.
Burial is tomorrow. Neither I nor her husband will be going due to the length of the trip, etc. I believe her son and my wife will be required to watch from their vehicles. The ceremony will be quite short, but of course they still want to be there.
Thank you all for your expressions of sympathy. I very much hope that none of you experience this in your family.
They had a nice private ceremony. Brought their own music. The coffin was draped with flowers. Brilliant sunny day in a beautiful setting. Oddly enough, small planes (3) landed at the local airport nearby and all three cast a shadow over the coffin when landing. The attendant said she had never seen anything like that.
In any event, the siblings left with a peaceful feeling.
