DEAR DEIDRE: MY dear wife died alone in hospital and I was not allowed to see her because of Covid.

I will never forgive myself for not being with her.

She had heart trouble and was in hospital already when she caught the virus. She passed away just three weeks later. She was 77, while I’m 73.

We were married for 42 wonderful years. Our daughter lives nearby but she has a busy life, with a husband and a young family of her own.

Friends have been very supportive. But I keep thinking about the moment that I left her at the hospital entrance all alone.

I feel so sad that that is how things ended.

DEIDRE SAYS: I am sorry to hear about your wife. Covid has been brutally tough for so many families and it must have been a terrible time for you. You had a wonderful marriage and your wife would have felt loved and cared for.

But you can come to terms with your loss – find expert bereavement counselling through Cruse (cruse.org.uk, 0808 808 1677).
