On this episode of The Stolen Goodbyes Podcast, Karen interviews Gordon Bonner, whose wife Muriel died on the 28th of April 2020. Gordon touchingly relates how they were long-distance pen pals before they embarked on a marriage that lasted for 63 years. Gordon was Muriel’s full-time carer after she developed dementia and before she was admitted to a care home after suffering a fall. Gordon movingly relates his anguish at being locked out of the care home before Muriel contracted Covid 19, the care home's lack of PPE and Muriel's titanic struggle for air before she finally succumbed to the virus. Although Gordon says he is now left in the hinterlands of despair and loneliness, he reminds us that grief is a price we pay for love.
