On March 16th, Clark County reported the first and second deaths of a married couple from COVID-19. They were my parents Merle and Dee Tofte and they died within hours of one another. I am in quarantine until March 26th. I can’t be with my loved ones. I can’t comfort my children whom have lost their grandparents. I can’t hold a service for my parents or attend their burial. Funeral homes are closed. It is believed they contracted COVID-19 through community spread. I wanted time and privacy to grieve but if their story can save a life, it needs to be told. Please share this. I love you Mom and Dad.

These are the stories that are just so devastating. RIP And there are no words strong enough for my wish that the family can come to peace over this.

So sad to hear this news, Gayle. Please convey my sincere condolences to your friend and her family. Sad as it is to think of them gone, it might be a hidden blessing to not have one left behind with this. It almost seems better for them to go together.

So sorry for your friends loss. They look like a beautiful couple. This puts a face on the tiny % that dont make it.

It's fascinating how people focus on certain causes of death over others.
