My sissy-in-training Marica went back to her home island for a visit and then the coronavirus shut everything down, including her way home.

While there, she became infected with COVID-19 as did a couple three of the people she lived with. I talked to her for 10 days, each day, as she got sicker and sicker… fevers, the coughing… what we all know happens.

The last I heard from her was 4 weeks ago yesterday. I have no way to contact her family (she kept everything separate from me and them), so have no one to ask. 2 weeks ago, her phone was turned off.

While my heart is breaking, I try to hold out hope that she will pop back into my life at any moment.

Please keep her in your thoughts.
