I don't know your family. However, my mom died unexpectedly on Saturday in Michigan, so I know firsthand the pain of not being able to say goodbye in person, hold a memorial service, or grieve together as a family during this pandemic. Peace be with your family during this extraordinary time of grief. I am reaching out to other families whose loved ones have recently passed away so that you know you are not alone.
