Bugger; just found out that a friend from my previous job died today. She was in ICU with Covid for a few weeks, and was even posting from there a few days ago, but didn’t make it out.
I’ve known her for ten years. She was funny, kind and leaves 2 young kids (7 and 4), as well as her poor husband.
I’ve said it before, but this year can do one.

Thanks all - Yes - it's 8yrs since I left the firm she worked for, and although we did keep up on Facebook, especially once she had kids, we weren't close - seeing the hundreds of messages from close friends from home, work, school run etc. shows how much impact someone's passing has on those closest to her. A lot of her friends are similar: 35-45, young families.
She wasn't even 40 - it's bloody awful - you're right @Chienmortbb; it's getting less choosy about who it takes, and although she was overweight, she had at least as many years again ahead of her.
I lost an Uncle and his youngest (my age) son to Covid last summer - although my mum's been estranged from her entire family for the best part of 30 years, so it was slightly surreal.
