A Texas woman mourning the loss of her husband at COVID-19 marked a savage obituary that blamed the death on President Donald Trump, the governor of the state and people who refuse to wear masks.
David Nagy, a father of five, died at a hospital in Longview, East Texas, on July 22 after being diagnosed with the coronavirus, his wife, Stacey Nagy, wrote in the obituary. He was 79 years old.
Nagy said her husband’s death was “unnecessary” and that Trump, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and other politicians were responsible.
“The blame for his death and the deaths of all the other innocent people falls on Trump, Abbott and all the other politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more interested in their popularity and votes than their lives,”; he said. she wrote.
The injustice – which took place last Thursday in the local newspaper, The Jefferson Jimplecute, and has been widely circulated on social media – also continued to point the finger at people who refuse to wear face masks.
“Also to blame are many ignorant, self-centered and selfish people who refused to follow the advice of medical professionals, believing that their ‘right’ not to wear a mask was more important than killing innocent people. Dave “Do everything you were supposed to do, but you did not,” Nagy wrote. “Shame on you all and Karma can find you all!”
David, who was born in California, leaves behind his wife and children, as “as well as numerous grandchildren, grandchildren and friends,” the obituary said.
Nagy did not immediately return NBC News’ request for comment Tuesday.
She told BuzzFeed News that her husband was suffering from medical conditions, including heart problems and diabetes. He was hospitalized and then transferred to a nursing home after a fall in late March.
Nagy told the exit that she and David’s son decided he should stay in the nursing home to be healed because they believed he would be safer. She said she was afraid he would catch the coronavirus while he was at the grocery store and would bring it home.
As the virus began to spread in Texas, the nursing home stopped allowing visitors.
“He stayed there and I was going to visit him, and I was just going to go to the window and yell at each other to talk,” she told BuzzFeed. “We will kiss the glass to give each other kisses.”
In early July, she said her husband fell ill and was taken to hospital, where he tested positive for coronavirus. She wrote in the obituary that family members were not allowed by him because of the pandemic.
Nagy told the exit that she was writing the obituary because she was angry. She said she discovered Monday that she had started going viral online.
“I did not do it to make people like it,” she told BuzzFeed. “I did it because I was deceived and I wanted people to know those who refuse to wear masks, that they are the killers and should be blamed, not just for Dave’s stuff, but for all these people.”
