"Our polarized nation continues to have people calling COVID-19 a hoax, claiming it's not a serious problem. And hearing that 500 thousand Americans have died from COVID may just be a numbing abstraction, but when your loved one suffocates on a ventilator, immobilized by sedatives, the heartache is real. The suffering is real. The tears shed are not a hoax. The loss is real. Death is real and permanent."
Arrangements are by the Joseph W. Epler Funeral Home, 210 King Street, Northumberland. www.eplerfuneralhome.com
