Mo Twister mourned the death of his wife Angelika Schmeing’s brother. The US-based radio DJ said their family’s shock and grief come in two parts — the shock of losing him and the shock of not being together to comfort each other.
“My wife lost her only brother yesterday to the coronavirus. I can’t even begin to put into words how devastated she is. I have never seen her this way. He was 38. I have never seen someone I care about so broken,” he said.
The 42-year-old former TV host shared that his brother-in-law’s son and wife are isolated and were unable to see him on his final day. “He wasn’t just a young man, he was a very good man. It is unfair,” he said.
“I remember early in January saying that this virus has to be taken seriously but it shouldn’t be a humanity killer and that we can learn from it. I’m not a doctor, I don’t have science behind that statement. I just knew if we are careful, we should survive it. I’m not so sure anymore,” Mo opened up.
On Facebook, Angelika asked her friends to stay home and stay safe.
“Stay home. Not just because it’s the right thing to do but because it gives you the opportunity that I didn’t have today, to tell my brother I love him,” she said.
