- Thirty-two-year-old husband and father of two, Jonathan Coelho, died of coronavirus leaving an emotional message for his wife and kids
- As his wife, Katie, wanted to clear his phone off family's pictures, she found the note where he said he totally loved them
- Before his demise, there was some kind of hope that he could survive after doctors momentarily considered him fit enough to go off his ventilator
Jonathan Coelho, aged 32, died on Wednesday, April 22, after a long battle of 28 days with coronavirus. But what happened after his demise shook his family anew.
His wife, Katie Coelho, would later find a note of appreciation on her husband’s phone, a message which began with: “I love you guy with all my heart…”
The woman, when talking to CNN, said that the children did not yet know that they had lost a great father, adding she cannot say how they will begin to react as time goes on.
Katie said that at a time her husband was getting better and the doctor was even considering taking him off the ventilator.
However, days after, she got an emergency call from the hospital asking her to come over. When she got there, she realised her husband had passed away after a cardiac arrest.
The bereaved woman said when she got to the hospital, in her confusion, she wanted to get all their family photos off her husband’s phone.
It was when she opened it that she discovered the heartfelt note her husband left behind for all of them.
"I am so lucky it makes me so proud to be your husband and the father to Braedyn and Penny. Katie you are the most beautiful caring nurturing person I've ever met. You are truly one of a kind...make sure you live life with happiness and that same passion that made me fall in love with you. Seeing you be the best mom to the kids is the greatest thing I've ever experienced,” a part of the note reads.
The wife said that the last time she had a good conversation with her husband was on Wednesday, March 29. And according to the timestamp of the note, that was when Jonathan wrote the note.
