According to Johns Hopkins University, 253,241 people have died from COVID-19 at the time of writing. Now many are being remembered on a new website celebrating the lives of those who have passed away.
Remember19 features obituaries for people from all over the world, with entries that recognize each death as a human loss, not a statistic.
Anyone can add an obituary, and many have already begun posting touching memories of family members, friends, and people within the community.
One entry for 54-year-old Lynsay Coventry from Harlow, Essex reads: “She was a very kind, gentle person and a committed midwife; she will be missed by everyone who knew her.”
Another touches on the life of Lieutenant General James Parker of Cork, who died aged 91, having served in Africa, the Middle-East, and further afield.
