A devoted husband captured in a touching video saying goodbye to his wife of 30 years as she lay dying of COVID-19 has also succumbed to the virus. Sam Reck, 90, was warned that he was putting himself at risk, but nothing would deter him from going to visit his wife Joanne. Despite all the precautions, Sam developed a fever days after his last visit. He tested positive for COVID-19. Over the weekend, his family announced that he died in the very same room that Joanne died just weeks ago.
