A client died today of Covid.

He used to be headquartered in Louisiana, then he moved to Colorado several years ago. We did work for him in both states.

A few days ago his family thought he was getting better, even though he was still in the hospital but not intubated. Then suddenly he died. He was only in his 40s.

I never liked him. He made an ass out of himself while drunk at an industry conference. He said something really gross to me about my boss, who was standing about five feet away, talking to someone else.

I recently found out that he was a MAGAt and a loudmouth anti-vaxxer.

I won’t shed any tears for him.

A bar owner in town whom I kind of like, he's been a fixture here for decades and the place is named after him, is in the ICU and was put on a vent today. He was on Oxygen for a couple days, had a good day and was put on the vent the next. He's older than me and I don't think he's vaxxed so I expect I'll see his obit soon.
