“May Karma Find You All”: Woman’s Brutally Honest Obituary For Her Husband Who Died From Coronavirus Is Going Viral

79-year-old David Nagy was one of 7016 Texas residents who have passed away from coronavirus. But David’s death, just like those of other innocent victims, could have been avoided.

In order to make the grieving family’s voice heard, his heartbroken wife Stacey wrote a powerful obituary in the local newspaper Jefferson Jimplecute on July 30. It soon caught the attention of people on social media and spread far further than Jefferson, a city of around 1,961 residents.

The impassioned obituary laid it out loud and clear who is to blame for David’s “needless death” and even stated that karma will “find you all!” Let’s take a look at the full text down below, which surely gives a lot of food for thought, especially these days when the pandemic is breathing over our shoulder but many still refuse to take it seriously.

In early July, David got sick and was taken to a local hospital where he tested positive for coronavirus. As his health worsened, doctors tried placing him on a ventilator, injecting remdesivir, and trying plasma therapy.

His wife Stacey wasn’t allowed inside and could only open the door less than an inch so they could talk. “He was unconscious by then, but I told him I loved him and I cried,” she said in this interview. On July 22, her husband became yet another needless coronavirus victim.

Stacey has shared her text published in a local newspaper on Facebook

Even though Marion County is no longer exempt from Gov. Abbott’s mask mandate due to the number of active cases reported by the Texas Department of State Health Services, widow Stacey Abbot still thinks that people aren’t taking the pandemic seriously.

“The people who are dying are the older people especially—a lot of younger people are dying too—but it’s almost like they’re saying, ‘Who cares about the older people?’ I’ve been with my husband for 20 years and all of a sudden he’s gone. People should know how this makes others feel.”

Stacey also said that he’s far from the only husband and father to die. “There’s been thousands of other husbands and wives and fathers and mothers and brothers that have died.” But she believes David would be proud of her now, though, for standing up for him and others.

And this is what people had to say

First of all, I want to offer my deepest condolences to this lady who lost her husband because of other people's selfishness and stupidity. Secondly, this is the reason that we are supposed to wear masks, to protect the elderly and the sick. My father is in the hospital right now in Dallas and my mother couldn't stay with him because of how bad this disease has gotten. So here's my advice to those who don't want to wear a mask: put on a mask, shut up, and start caring about someone other than yourself.

Why is wearing a mask so difficult for some? I honestly don’t get it. If you have the virus you won’t have symptoms for a few days so you could unknowingly pass it to someone else so the mask protects others from you and in the same way protects you from them if they’re unknowingly a carrier. Why is this so hard to grasp? Has Trump really made stupidity a thing to praise?

it is sad to read about such a tragedy, and that are so many people all over the world. It is not yet possible to estimate how many people may not have died immediately from Covid19, but how many will do so in the future due to the late effects.

Agree. Rest in peace, you beautiful soul! I wish David's family strength in this very difficult time. And I hope they all stay safe and healthy. A big 'thank you' to the woman who, even in such a difficult time, called out the responsible and reminded us of our duty towards eachother. Every victim should be honoured and many countries only count those who tested positive and then died in hospital. Many deaths are not counted that way. Here in Belgium, they count very thoroughly, perhaps we even overestimate the numbers, but at least, no matter how tragic, we know that we're informed more correctly. That's why we have the highest number of deaths. Later, so many countries will have to admit how many people really died. Our head virologist said that the official numbers for many countries should be dubbeled to get a correct estimation. And indeed, many more will sadly die due to permanent damage. Let's hope I'm wrong and that truly, less people died. Take care of yourself, everyone.

Man...as people are debating what to do with schools I can't help but feel bad for the kids of the people who are arguing that they won't die from it. It's not going to be better for them in the long run. Nobody wants to be responsible for the suffering, sickness, or death of others. Of course the older kids know this, and many will be careful. But what are you going to tell your kindergartener when they grow up? "I argued for you to go back to school and that's why you can't even remember your grandparents' voices anymore. You didn't know at the time, you couldn't understand, but playing with your friends and touching each other caused you to contract coronavirus and pass it to everyone we know. Remember that kid, _____? He always shared his fruit with you at lunch, but you never saw him after that year? He had an auto immune disorder..." How will they sleep at night, thinking the pain you've caused is their fault? Are you really going to fight just to place that burden on your child?

My sincere condolences go to this woman and her family. Also to all of the other families who have lost a loved one to this horrific virus. Hopefully Trump and the other Politicians who downplayed this virus will never see Political office again! I live in Canada and in a Province where masks are not mandatory yet. But we have a low rate of infections (all brought in internationally + one provincially) and no deaths!

Mrs Nagy - My heart breaks for your family. And all the other victims of this pandemic who have been harmed by deniers, arrogance and selfishness. The least I can do is respect my fellow humans enough to invest in several masks, wear them wherever I can, help friends and family however I can with a friendly voice on the phone, a small supply of treats I can share. Even some time to talk - with mask AND distance.

Even if wearing a mask didn't make any difference at all (it does) is it really THAT horrible to wear one? We're adults. I voluntarily do things that are a lot more uncomfortable all the time. I pulled weeds in my garden to the point of blisters this weekend. People push themselves to uncomfortable levels at the gym. Hell we PAY a dentist to make us uncomfortable. It is absolutely appalling that there are so many people out there who are this selfish, this immature, this willfully ignorant that they destroy families like this. This poor, heartbroken woman has every right to be angry.

People do think the elderly are disposable. Our deaths are an acceptable trade for money and so called freedoms. In our society today we are blamed for all that is wrong with our country. I blame the wealthy big businessman. But no it's ok boomer, like everyone my age was involved. It seems like people have no compassion or empathy.

Just yesterday, a silly girl held a speech and compared herself to Sophie Scholl, who was sentenced to death and killed by Nazis for opposing their regime back then. She held this speech from a stage, publicly visible and audible, protected by the police of the so-called dictatorship she so strongly opposes. When a security guard told her he wouldn't support this s**t anymore, because she was conparing her situation to the one of Sophie Scholl, and thereby ridiculng the Nazi's numerous victims, she enacted a minor tanter tantrum and left the stage crying - after she had proclaimed she never could nor would give up fighting for freedom, peace, love and justice. Well, she gave up - and rightfully that! These people make me sick ... abusing the right to protest for making propaganda in favor of a real plague is so low ... what tf is wrong with these people? How can one not get it, be ignorant to THAT extent...?

Why are people like this even exists, always blaming someone else for there problems! It's you're choice to wear a masks, why would you not wearing a masks blame this on someone else. And To tell you the truth you can not tell an AMERICAN what they can and can't do!!! First Trump has nothing to do with this corona virus, this virus was tracked back to China. China release this disease and just not to the US but to the whole world. Second we were watching China on tv since back in February, when we watched them build two hospitals in a week! Third of all, George W Bush didn't create N1H1, just like Obama didn't create SARS, so why would anyone think that Trump would create Coronavirus. People need to start taking responsibility for their own actions and quit blaming it on other people.

I'm sorry for anyone who has lost a family member to Covid, and I agree that we've handled it horribly here in the US. But did people think that we were going to actually stop it, eliminate it entirely from the country, and no one would get it? That was never a possibility. We are merely trying to flatten the curve to avoid overwhelming the hospitals. That's it. We aren't trying to eliminate it, because that's impossible. So, very likely he would have gotten it eventually even if we were smart about it. There might a very tiny few who hold on until a vaccine, but they are people able to literally stay home and isolated for 2+ years, and almost no one is going to do that.

Other than Trump's discourse on the virus (which was obviously dumb but was not any actual policy), I don't understand what he did wrong. He closed borders to China while either the CDC or the WHO said that wasn't necessary, and he labeled it a pandemic as soon as the WHO labeled it one. What else could he have done? The mask situation (although I agree with wearing a mask can be very important), it's not as clear cut as the media makes it out to be- there are and have been studies that have found masks may not have much effect along with those that say the opposite. Just because you believe one side does not make it the only true one. Then, at the same time many people who blame Trump won't blame China while some even have gotten mad at those who have blamed China even though there's reason to believe China made some of their doctors "disappear" who sounded the alarm bells early. Again, I know Trump hasn't been perfect, but no one has- we're literally figuring this out as we go.

If you have the virus you won’t have symptoms for a few days so you could unknowingly pass it to someone else so the mask protects others from you and in the same way protects you from them if they’re unknowingly a carrier. Why is this so hard to grasp? Has Trump really made stupidity a thing to praise?

Very sorry for your loss. Your anger and desire to blame others will eat you alive. Take time to grieve, anger is apart of the process. In the end Peace only comes through acceptance. Staying busy will be your friend until you get there.

One of the comments said that he would have been safer at home than in a nursing home. Is there any indication than he was living in a nursing home when he contracted Covid?

it is sad to read about such a tragedy, and that are so many people all over the world. It is not yet possible to estimate how many people may not have died immediately from Covid19, but how many will do so in the future due to the late effects.

Agree. Rest in peace, you beautiful soul! I wish David's family strength in this very difficult time. And I hope they all stay safe and healthy. A big 'thank you' to the woman who, even in such a difficult time, called out the responsible and reminded us of our duty towards eachother. Every victim should be honoured and many countries only count those who tested positive and then died in hospital. Many deaths are not counted that way. Here in Belgium, they count very thoroughly, perhaps we even overestimate the numbers, but at least, no matter how tragic, we know that we're informed more correctly. That's why we have the highest number of deaths. Later, so many countries will have to admit how many people really died. Our head virologist said that the official numbers for many countries should be dubbeled to get a correct estimation. And indeed, many more will sadly die due to permanent damage. Let's hope I'm wrong and that truly, less people died. Take care of yourself, everyone.

I wonder how he got the virus if he did everything he was supposed to. That’s not a challenge, I’m really curious when he got it and from who and how, not that I’ll ever know but if you’re taking all Of the precautions I wonder how it can still infect you.

Man...as people are debating what to do with schools I can't help but feel bad for the kids of the people who are arguing that they won't die from it. It's not going to be better for them in the long run. Nobody wants to be responsible for the suffering, sickness, or death of others. Of course the older kids know this, and many will be careful. But what are you going to tell your kindergartener when they grow up? "I argued for you to go back to school and that's why you can't even remember your grandparents' voices anymore. You didn't know at the time, you couldn't understand, but playing with your friends and touching each other caused you to contract coronavirus and pass it to everyone we know. Remember that kid, _____? He always shared his fruit with you at lunch, but you never saw him after that year? He had an auto immune disorder..." How will they sleep at night, thinking the pain you've caused is their fault? Are you really going to fight just to place that burden on your child?

My sincere condolences go to this woman and her family. Also to all of the other families who have lost a loved one to this horrific virus. Hopefully Trump and the other Politicians who downplayed this virus will never see Political office again! I live in Canada and in a Province where masks are not mandatory yet. But we have a low rate of infections (all brought in internationally + one provincially) and no deaths!

Mrs Nagy - My heart breaks for your family. And all the other victims of this pandemic who have been harmed by deniers, arrogance and selfishness. The least I can do is respect my fellow humans enough to invest in several masks, wear them wherever I can, help friends and family however I can with a friendly voice on the phone, a small supply of treats I can share. Even some time to talk - with mask AND distance.

Even if wearing a mask didn't make any difference at all (it does) is it really THAT horrible to wear one? We're adults. I voluntarily do things that are a lot more uncomfortable all the time. I pulled weeds in my garden to the point of blisters this weekend. People push themselves to uncomfortable levels at the gym. Hell we PAY a dentist to make us uncomfortable. It is absolutely appalling that there are so many people out there who are this selfish, this immature, this willfully ignorant that they destroy families like this. This poor, heartbroken woman has every right to be angry.

People do think the elderly are disposable. Our deaths are an acceptable trade for money and so called freedoms. In our society today we are blamed for all that is wrong with our country. I blame the wealthy big businessman. But no it's ok boomer, like everyone my age was involved. It seems like people have no compassion or empathy.

Just yesterday, a silly girl held a speech and compared herself to Sophie Scholl, who was sentenced to death and killed by Nazis for opposing their regime back then. She held this speech from a stage, publicly visible and audible, protected by the police of the so-called dictatorship she so strongly opposes. When a security guard told her he wouldn't support this s**t anymore, because she was conparing her situation to the one of Sophie Scholl, and thereby ridiculng the Nazi's numerous victims, she enacted a minor tanter tantrum and left the stage crying - after she had proclaimed she never could nor would give up fighting for freedom, peace, love and justice. Well, she gave up - and rightfully that! These people make me sick ... abusing the right to protest for making propaganda in favor of a real plague is so low ... what tf is wrong with these people? How can one not get it, be ignorant to THAT extent...?

Fuck you, bitch. How dare you use the death of your father as a platform for your irrational hatred of President Trump, who, I may add, handled this pandemic fine? He was working on this in January while the Democrats were wasting thier time on a bogus and Unconstitutional impeachment and discouraging people from social distancing.

Why are people like this even exists, always blaming someone else for there problems! It's you're choice to wear a masks, why would you not wearing a masks blame this on someone else. And To tell you the truth you can not tell an AMERICAN what they can and can't do!!! First Trump has nothing to do with this corona virus, this virus was tracked back to China. China release this disease and just not to the US but to the whole world. Second we were watching China on tv since back in February, when we watched them build two hospitals in a week! Third of all, George W Bush didn't create N1H1, just like Obama didn't create SARS, so why would anyone think that Trump would create Coronavirus. People need to start taking responsibility for their own actions and quit blaming it on other people.

If we are so disgusting with China we should just cut them off. I know the government won’t do it. However it is Trumps fault if he had closed the border it could’ve been contained. Let’s make whatever we’re getting from China in America.

I'm sorry for anyone who has lost a family member to Covid, and I agree that we've handled it horribly here in the US. But did people think that we were going to actually stop it, eliminate it entirely from the country, and no one would get it? That was never a possibility. We are merely trying to flatten the curve to avoid overwhelming the hospitals. That's it. We aren't trying to eliminate it, because that's impossible. So, very likely he would have gotten it eventually even if we were smart about it. There might a very tiny few who hold on until a vaccine, but they are people able to literally stay home and isolated for 2+ years, and almost no one is going to do that.

Other than Trump's discourse on the virus (which was obviously dumb but was not any actual policy), I don't understand what he did wrong. He closed borders to China while either the CDC or the WHO said that wasn't necessary, and he labeled it a pandemic as soon as the WHO labeled it one. What else could he have done? The mask situation (although I agree with wearing a mask can be very important), it's not as clear cut as the media makes it out to be- there are and have been studies that have found masks may not have much effect along with those that say the opposite. Just because you believe one side does not make it the only true one. Then, at the same time many people who blame Trump won't blame China while some even have gotten mad at those who have blamed China even though there's reason to believe China made some of their doctors "disappear" who sounded the alarm bells early. Again, I know Trump hasn't been perfect, but no one has- we're literally figuring this out as we go.

I agree with her. Karma will come through. Those who survived covid should be known as well as those who passed from it because of airheads who refuses to follow safety protocol. I heard some folks dying in hospitals from things unrelated to covid is having cause of death covid 19 written on their certificates. I can't with this sketchy world anymore. No ones treated equally and right anymore
