Our parents caught covid and were getting home treatment for few days, while we were helplessly watching them go through the pain. Their situation started deteriorating and had been hospitalized leaving us both at our grandparent's house. While we're in touch with them on the phone daily, our relatives and friends were trying their best to ensure they return back normal. All these efforts did not bear fruit and both were admitted to ICU. On hearing this news, our grandfather has collapsed under stress. It was so painful to witness his passing away. The day after, our father's situation deteriorated even further due to covid pneumonia and he became unresponsive. The doctors tried to resuscitate him but in vain. Our mother too fought for few more days though her lungs were collapsing; she took her last breath too leaving us in a void that cannot be filled.
Our parents were a lively and happy couple, very helpful and caring for everyone around them. They never blinked to give us the best life and future dreams. Like all children, we relished that special bonding among us 4. Now, they left us behind alone shattered. We lost both our financial and emotional support and taking solace with our grandmother, who is equally traumatized by the loss of her husband and her son and her daughter-in-law right in front of her eyes.
Our uncles and aunts are helping us stay strong; seeking to raise funds for the immediate needs, current and future educational expenses of myself and my brother. We urge all our friends, acquaintances, and well-wishers to please contribute and do the needful. No contribution is big or small. please do whatever you can to help.
