My beloved brother, William Edward Merritt, III, died from COVID-19 on August 26, 2021.
"Last year, he contracted COVID and survived. During that time, he had two strokes and also fought on. And then, this year, as he was healing and getting back to a challenging form of normalcy, COVID struck again. This time it was the delta variant, and this time he didn’t make it. He died on August 26, three days after his diagnosis." Read more from this piece by Sylvester Brown for The St. Louis American | The “Unfairness” of COVID-19.
And please read the amazing obituary our sister wrote here.
May he rest in power and peace, until we meet again.
