“Family members believe that David’s death was unnecessary,” she wrote. “They blame his death and the deaths of all other innocent people on Trump, (Texas Gov. Greg) Abbott and all the other politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than life.”
To blame her husband’s death, Nagy wrote, are the “ignorant, self-centered and selfish people who refused to follow doctors’ advice, believing that their” right “not to wear a mask was more important than killing innocent people.”
“Dave did everything he was supposed to do, but you did not,” Nagy wrote. “Shame on you all, and karma can find you all!”
Nagy told CNN’s Erin Burnett that she was upset and angry when she wrote her husband’s obituary. She wanted to force her neighbors to wear masks and “put the blame where the guilt belongs.”
“It’s frustrating when you know someone has died who did not have to die, or at least did not have to die the way they did and the time they did,” Nagy said in his Tuesday appearance on “Erin Burnett On the Front Page.”
David, originally from California, retired to Texas and had lived in Jefferson for several years before his death, Nagy said. He was loved by his family and friends for his playful needle.
“Dave was a character,” Nagy said. “He was a funny person and he loved his family dearly.”
Nagy said she lost the love of her life. He was a part of her, she said, – a part she thinks she lost too soon.
