The newspaper obituary for David Nagy of Jefferson, Texas, makes it crystal clear who his family blames for his â€œneedlessâ€ death from the coronavirus.
President Donald Trump, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and other politicians who failed to take the pandemic seriously are responsible for the 79-year-oldâ€™s July 22 death, the family wrote in the obituary published by the Jefferson Jimplecute in East Texas on Thursday.
Also at fault were the â€œmany ignorant, self-centered and selfish people who refused to follow the advice of the medical professionals, believing their â€˜rightâ€™ not to wear a mask was more important than killing innocent people,â€ the obituary said.
Check out the obituary here:
Nagy contracted COVID-19 in a convalescent hospital, where heâ€™d been recovering from illness, his wife of 20 years Stacey NagyÂ told Snopes, the fact-checking website.Â
He died alone, unable to receive visitors, after suffering â€œgreatly from the ravages of the COVID-19 virus,â€ the family said in the obituary.
â€œDave did everything he was supposed to do, but you did not,â€ the obituary concluded. â€œShame on all of you, and may Karma find you all!â€
â€œI miss my husband dearly,â€ Stacey Nagy told Snopes. â€œIâ€™m taking one day at a time to just try to keep going.â€
â€œWhen I wrote that thing it was because of him,â€ she said. â€œI donâ€™t want his death just to disappear. I wrote that and partially, it keeps him alive for me.â€
