Thankyou to the team for the amazing work you all do. My mum's name is on the wall & it is a positive place for me to go & remember her with love. Thanks so much too my wonderful friend Rita Gulrajani for arranging for my mum's name to be added to the wall as I was living oversees - very special of you to think of us both. xxx
My father died of hospital acquired covid 19 in November 2020. I am so distressed and traumatised by the whole experience. The last time I saw him was through the window of AMAU and he was so hypoxic, we couldn't have a meaningful conversation. I am heart broken by this and the way the hospital treated us as a family.
I really admire the dedication of those who have created the hearts on this wall and maintained it. As a permanent memorial it will honor all those who have died in the pandemic.
We lost our wonderful, fit as a fiddle Dad to Covid within a week of testing positive to Covid (although he tested negative at the test centre, in a series of calamities created by the UK Government.) While the Government urges us all to get back to normal, those of who lost dear ones will never be able to. The least the government can do to honour those who sacrificed their lives to this vile, indiscriminate virus, is to allow a wall to remain in recognition of the loss. I just wish we could do more.
My son aged 48 died on the 26 March 2020 just after the start of the first lockdown, not of COVID19 but of a heart attack because he was not sent to hospital for a check as the local NHS was under stress/overwhelmed. I thoroughly support the National Covid Memorial Wall but would ask this could also include the likes of my son who died not of the virus but because of the effect of COVID19 on the capability of the NHS.
I have no words that are adequate to describe how sad the past two years have been. I have been lucky in that I haven’t lost anyone to covid, but day by day we all felt that collective pain. We should always remember those who died and the family and friends who grieve for them.
