Woman Plays Wedding Song For Husband On FaceTime As He Dies From Covid19
A New York woman spent her final moments with her husband on Facetime as he passed from complications due to the coronavirus.
In a conversation with CNN, Maura Lewinger remembered her thoughtful husband, who regularly left notes in her lunch box.
“He always took care of me, got me my coffee and help me in every way,” she told CNN Friday.
Her husband Joe, 42, died last weekend after experiencing mild symptoms.
“He was such a giver. And in every respect of the word. He just loved to make people happy… loved to make people feel loved.”

Lewinger said he had no pre-existing condition and only experienced a minor fever. She says it was not until mid-March that his symptoms worsened.
The location of the couple is unknown, but doctors at the hospital warned Lewinger that her husband’s breathing was not getting any better.
“I saw him and I begged him not to leave us,” Lewinger said, recalling their Facetime conversation. “And told him we all need him.”
That’s when the staff went back to see if they could do anything else for the father-of-three.
“We have thrown the kitchen sink at him and I’m afraid he doesn’t have more time,” the doctor told Lewinger.
During her last conversation with Joe, Lewinger “thanked him for being the most amazing husband, for making me feel cherished and loved every single day.”
“I played our wedding song for him. And then that was it,” Lewinger told CNN.
People rallied behind Lewinger on Twitter. One woman watched and said the interview completely broke her heart.
Maura Lewinger on CNN has completely broken my heart. I can’t imagine the grief of having to say goodbye to my husband by facetime. I really don’t know how Erin Burnett is holding it together right now. I’m bawling on my couch.
