A few days after, Gwendolyn came down with the disease with very severe symptoms that were graver than her husband’s.

Gwendolyn’s daughter had to advise her to get to the hospital. Four days after she was admitted, the woman passed away. But before her death, she had the time to say goodbye to Adams and her grandchildren through FaceTime.

Though Adams’ father battled a bit longer with the virus, he died on Wednesday, July 29. His case worsened with a kidney problem.

"This is rough. It's one thing to know you are going to lose your parents eventually - but to know that you just saw them last week...and you never see them again, it's a shock,” Adams said.
