Kentucky Stories of Loss

Should've Been at My Wedding

Who did you lose to Covid 19? Norma Goben

Grandma, you should've been sitting in the front row while I walked down the aisle, but instead, there was an empty seat in your honor. You should've been dancing, laughing, and smiling with our family, but instead, you died alone in the hospital. You should've been in all my wedding pictures, but instead, your picture was on our memorial table.

Covid took a lot of things from me, but none of them compared to losing you. My grandma was the sweetest, wittiest, and funniest person I've ever known. She's also the only person I knew who loved Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza. She never failed to make me laugh and let me know how much she loved me.

I miss you and love you lots, Grandma
