FTFY because sitting now and listening to how one of the levayos went down today and this is how i feel.

 And another two close people that were rushed to the hospital.   I'm almost starting to understand how people at the holocaust became immune to family members being killed or shipped off.  We are used to the fact that if someone dies the whole community cries along.  But now its a new whatsapp message every hour about another person dying.

I worry about this a lot. I wish I was more optimistic that this was not only the beginning. Someone in my BIL's family passed away, the wasn't much of a levaya, and many family members couldn't go because they are at risk and/or restricted. As someone who has sat shiva for both parents, I understand the therapeutic value of Shiva. While, no doubt, these people can still sit shiva, and will get phone calls and facetimes, etc. I honestly don't think it's the same.

My two biggest hopes are that:
a) We don't become desensitized to the loss of life.
b) Those who are morning the loss of a loved one (or, R"L ones) should be able to have nechama and closure.

My shver was niftar motzei Shabbas in NYC. He was ‘lucky’ enough to get a Tahara but we had to bury him al tanai in a temporary grave so we can move him to Israel at a later date. Only option to get to Israel was via a private jet but body could not be escorted by anyone due to the quarantine laws.

I have to say this has been one of the most gut wrenching, heart breaking experiences of my life and watch someone who was a true yoreh shamyim to have had a levya with a few people in the rain at the grave site. Not being able to say Kaddish for him, not have a shiva and give proper respect to him has been truly unbearable.

This is not to mention he was isolated in an icu unit for two weeks by himself on a ventilator and died by himself with his children not being able to goodbye.

I am not someone who would typically share this info but people need to know what we are dealing with here. The pain is too much.

Heartbreaking. What a terrible experience. I have no words. May Hashem end this terrible מגפה soon and may you and your family find nechama.
