Tributes have been pouring in for a grieving family in New Jersey after coronavirus claimed the lives of a married couple and their son…

As the pandemic continues, we have heard of some devasting losses at the hands of the virus.

And it comes after a happily married couple were faced with utter devastation, only for the family to be dealt another horrific blow.

A married couple will love each other, in both sickness and in health.

It is quite unusual in today’s day and age for a married couple to stay together longer than a decade.

Figures show that the average U.S. marriage only lasts around 7 years… Which doesn’t really give a couple much time to fully commit to their wedding vows.

And remain faithful to one another, despite what life throws in their path.

But it is amid the most heartbreaking of circumstances due to the pandemic.

Larry served in the US Army before working for 24 years at the old Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery in Newark, while his wife, Vicki, worked for the Township of Fairfield for many years.

Larry and Vicki were faced with an unimaginable loss.

He was just fifty-one years old.

We can’t imagine how it must have felt.

Just 2 days later, the couple also succumbed to the illness.

The illness claimed the lives of the couple on the same day – at the ages of 85 and 83, respectively.

We can’t imagine what the family must be going through right now.

Gov. Phil Murphy honored the family in a series of tweets.

“May God bless these 3 souls.”

And hailed Vicki as “incredibly creative, and a den mother in the Cub Scouts for each of her 3 sons.”

Tributes came flooding in for the family.

Our thoughts are with their friends and family at this difficult time.
