SAYING goodbye to our loved ones is one of the hardest things we experience in life.

It is important that people who die get a touching send-off, make people in the community aware of their passing and serves as a moving summary of who the person was and how much they meant to loved ones.

Sometimes words cannot sum up how special a person was or how sorely missed he or she will be.

Dorset Echo is planning to sensitively write a tribute piece to those who have sadly passed away due to coronavirus in Dorset over the course of the pandemic.

We have already published a tribute to a ‘caring son’ and ‘popular’ Weymouth singer Lance Mills who died from Covid-19 at Dorset County Hospital earlier this year, with special memories shared by his family and closest friends.

Dorset Echo also published a story about a 'much-loved' GP, Doctor Craig Wakeham, who was described as a 'devoted husband and father' who was a 'valued and committed colleague and friend.'

Martin Farnham, a 'much-loved' grandad and dad from Bridport, passed away in May last year.

We would like to work with families and friends of coronavirus victims to sensitively share tributes and memories of their dearly missed loved ones.
