This story is absolutely heartbreaking, and our thoughts are with Barbara Davis.

Barbara Davis is an 81-year-old Kings Mountain woman who is currently taking it ‘day by day.’

Her husband, 82-year-old Dennis Davis, caught COVID-19 while living at the North Carolina State Veterans Home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He was from Cornelius but was living at the home because of Alzheimer’s disease. In May, seven residents of the home passed away due to COVID-19. On June 5, he lost his battle to the virus and she was not allowed to visit him because of restrictions.

Less than three weeks later, Barbara Davis found herself in the same situation with her 57-year-old son. She was able to make it to Carolina Medical Center in time to say goodbye to her son. He had already spent 3 weeks in the hospital and had shown improvement just a day earlier, but lost his battle after the condition suddenly worsened on Thursday. Her son traveled the state as a construction supervisor and the family doesn’t know where he contracted the virus.

Memorials may be made to Alzheimer’s Association-Western Carolina Chapter, 4600 Park Road, Suite 250, Charlotte, NC 28209.

Please keep Barbara Davis & loved ones in your thoughts.
