Couple held hands as they both died from coronavirus

A couple who were married for 48 years held hands as they both died from the deadly coronavirus.

Johnny Lee Peoples, 67, and his wife, Cathy Darlene Peoples, 65, battled Covid-19 for a month at a hospital in Salisbury, North Carolina.

The couple were moved in the same room so they could spend their final moments together. Johnny Lee Peoples and Cathy Darlene Peoples died on September 2. Mirror reported.

Mr and Mrs Peoples coronavirus battle started 30 days earlier when they both suffered symptoms.

The couple’s son, Shane Peoples while talking about the coronavirus symptoms, said it was mainly fever and loss of taste, he told WBTV.

“My dad starting showing symptoms two days later.

“About two weeks later they were both put in the ICU. Everything just went south, everything just got worse.”

And as the couple’s conditions worsened, they were able to comfort each other in hospital.

“The next day they put them in the same room, same ICU room, they put their hands together, the nurses gathered around and they passed within four minutes of each other.” Shane added.

He posted a heartbreaking tribute to his parents on Facebook.

” “We were cheated. The lives of Mum and Dad were stolen by a virus that many joke about on a daily basis or just straight out believe it’s a hoax of some sort. Both of them took this pandemic seriously and still got sick, still died…

“I told myself when I started this, I would not do so in anger, but for the love they inspired me to give.

“They both loved their family very much and did anything and everything they could possibly do for them. Their love for family was greatest when it came to their grandchildren, nine of them in total. They wanted the best for their grandchildren, they would go out of their way just to make each one of them feel special. I had some pretty darn awesome parents.

“I miss them so very much. I’m not sure how I’m going to deal without being about to talk to them every night on my ride home from work or not being able to send them pictures and videos of my family.

“I’ll never be able to hug them, again. I’ll never hear Mum sing happy birthday to anyone, again. I’ll never see them smile when they see Liam and Ava come in the room.

“They won’t get to see their grandchildren grow up, or see many of their grandchildren graduate.

“I just wish everyone could see them through my eyes. You would see the two most loving and caring couple, ever. Without them, this world just got a bit more gloomy.”
