Teens deal with unimaginable loss after both parents die from COVID-19: “We miss them” (CBS This Morning)

CBS This Morning: Teens deal with unimaginable loss after both parents die from COVID-19: “We miss them”. “Rita Marquez-Mendoza has always been close to her two teenage grandsons, Nathan and Isaiah, but she never imagined that she’d become the closest thing they’d have to a mom or a dad. Her daughter Noehmi died of COVID-19 in July at just 39 years old. Mendoza said she had to say goodbye to her over the phone…. Carlos was the boys’ father, who Rita said she loved as one of her own. Days after Noehmi died, Carlos became sick with COVID-19 as well. He died 15 days later and the boys were orphaned.”
