A Michigan woman has lost her husband and son to the CCP virus just three days apart.

Sandy Brown of Grand Blanc, Michigan, lost her husband, 59-year-old Freddie Lee Brown Jr., and her only son, 20-year-old Freddie Lee Brown III, in the last few days of March, reported CBS News.

According to report, Brown was left devastated about her son passed away on March 29 and her husband on March 26 after contracting the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as novel coronavirus.

WWMT reported that Brown held a small visitation on Facebook Live before her husband and son’s funeral on April 10.

Brown placed a Michigan State jersey on her son’s casket as he was supposed to attend university in the fall of 2020, according to CBS News. He attended Mott Community College prior to his death.

“My two men are gone. I am standing here in the strength of the Lord, not no strength of my own,” Brown said.

In the Facebook Live, she laid both of them to rest.

Several other people also came to mourn with Brown and express their condolences and pay their respects. But they did so from their cars to adhere to the CDC’s social distancing rules.

Only Brown and those involved in the funeral were allowed inside Dodd’s Dumanois for the funeral. They all wore masks during the service.

“They knew they could only just come in their cars and support and so people have come and they’ve done what we asked them o do and be able to show their support and presence,” said Kiemba Knowlin, a pastor at the Jason Memorial Temple, according to WWMT.

In an interview with Fox 66, Brown said that when she took her husband to the emergency room at Ascension Genesys, they were sent away because doctors informed her husband he did not meet the testing criteria. By the time of their second visit, he was needing to be put on a ventilator.

“There’s not even a word created to describe my pain. It’s unimaginable.

“In three days, I lost my husband and my son to an ugly plague. I watched my son go from completely well and whole and happy to being gone in three days,” Brown said.
