    They aren’t new deaths, they just went back to the old records and added people who died a while ago

    They most likely need to add a couple more 0 onto that tally

    Is anyone else feeling worried that someone vulnerable and dear to them is likely to pass away during this time where funerals will be restricted to just a few people?

    My boss is 80 and has been in isolation at home for weeks, but his health is declining (physically & mentally) and I feel so sad that he could pass away before I get to see him again and that I won’t be able to be at his funeral.

    He’s been like a second father to me

    Not personaly but a dear friend lost her elderly mother 2 weeks ago. It was horrible. This lady had 4 children, 10+ grandkids and was very well know and loved within her community.

    My friend said she’s never felt so lost, it meant she couldn’t sit with her dad and siblings and “remember” her mum. She has been very deeply effected by it.

    Yes, my Uncle passed away this week. The funeral was today. So heartbroken for my mum that she couldn’t attend. She wants to be with her sister at this time, but can’t be there. They will have a memorial that we will go to, but it’s not the same as being there when they need us.

    I’m sorry to hear this hon, it’s just heartbreaking.

    Absolutely. My friends Nanna died recently and she was unable to attend the funeral because of the restrictions. Initially they were going to be allowed to go to a viewing at the funeral home, but even that was stopped. So she never got to say her final goodbyes. Last saw her a few weeks back before the state government clamped down on “unnecessary travel”.

    A work colleague lost her daughter too. No one was allowed to attend the funeral apart from immediate family. So many of us would have gone to support her had we been allowed.

    For me, I have one remaining grandparent. My 91yo Nanna. She lives interstate and is currently at my uncles place anyway. I would be devastated if she died during all of this because she is the one I’m closest to out of all my grandparents. I have also been to the funerals of all 3 of my other grandparents, so missing this one would really upset me.

    Also, none of my family (apart from DH and DD) live in Brisbane. If anyone died, I’d not be able to go to funerals. Folks and sister are in Tassie and from what mum and dad have said, the airport is basically closed and there are no flights coming in or out since they closed their borders except for essential workers.

    My dad. He is 78. Only has 1 lung that works properly and the other one is crap. It will be devastating either way and hardest for my sister as I know she won’t be able to get flights to come home from ny
