Michigan couple Cal and Linda Dunham were together until the very end, when they lost their lives due to COVID-19.
The Grand Rapids husband and wife, who both had undisclosed pre-existing conditions, had been vaccinated for months when they fell ill during a family camping trip earlier this month, daughter Sarah Dunham told Fox17.
“[My dad] called me before our family camping trip and said he wasn’t feeling good but he thinks it’s just like sinus [issues], and [Linda] caught it and she’s like, ‘He gave me his cold,’ ” Sarah told the outlet. “The third day they woke me up and said, ‘We’ve got to go because we don’t feel well.’ ”
Days later, both Cal and Linda were on ventilators at the hospital, and on Sunday, the pair died within a minute of each other, the outlet reported.
“They gained their angel wings one minute apart from each other. Cal passing at 11:07am and Linda at 11:08am,” according to a GoFundMe created to help cover funeral arrangements.
In an even deeper testament to their love, the couple died holding hands in their respective hospital beds, Sarah told Fox17.
