The Wider Image: For children who lost a parent, the pandemic pain will never end
Justise McGowan, 13, whose father died from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in May 2020, has her mother, Dr. Sandra McGowan-Watts, a family physician, examine her leg following an injury at track tryouts in Matteson, Illinois, U.S. March 16, 2022. McGowan-Watts, whose husband Steven Watts died in May 2020, has been trying to maintain as much of Justise's routine as possible. Last summer, when the bushes in her yard needed to be trimmed, Justise found her dad's hedge trimmers and got to work. "She does the things that he would do," Sandra says.
