The last time Beverly Fields was able to talk to her husband, James, he was in the hospital. The call happened over FaceTime with the assistance of a nurse. James couldn’t open his eyes.
“I only wish I could see his eyes open,” Beverly said five weeks later.
James Fields, who was 81 years old and loved boating and scuba diving, spent weeks in a Livingston County nursing home before testing positive for the coronavirus. He died at an Ann Arbor hospital on April 24.
