For a long time, the woman was fighting with breast cancer. But suddenly on a few days notice she felt severely sick on a different disease which ultimately led to leave the world leaving six children behind.
Sundee Rutter, 42 is a breast cancer survivor who died from the respiratory disease coronavirus in the US on March 16.
She was immediately separated from all the visitors by the hospital authority to contain further spread after being identified positive. But then something amazing happened. Sensing her time is coming over, the hospital staff made an arrangement for the kids to say the last goodbye to their mother, reports CNN.
"They took a walkie-talkie, and they placed (it) right by her bedside, on the pillow. We got to say our final words and goodbyes to our mom. It's kind of hard. In the moment, you really don't know what you're going to say, you know?" said her son Elijah Ross-Rutter, 20.
He added, "I told mom everything's going to be all right with the kids. Us older siblings, we're going to make sure everything's OK with (the younger ones) and that they're going to grow up to be some adults that my mom would want them to be," he recalled.
These six children aged from 13 to 24, lost their father eight years ago. Right now, Elijah's eldest brother, Tyree Ross-Rutter, intends to take custody of his younger siblings, ages 13, 14 and 15. "We plan on staying together, and all getting a house together ... and fighting this all together," Elijah said.
They created an online website named GoFundMe to help them finish up the estate and legal custody process. It raised more that $350,00 securing the issues regarding their future.
