It’s often said that when twins are separated, their spirits live together till they part no more.
The twin sister of a nurse who died of Coronavirus has also died, just three days after her twin sister died.
Emma Davis, 37, also a former nurse, died at Southampton General Hospital on Friday, just three days after the death of identical twin Katy, who worked as a paediatric nurse at the same hospital
Emma’s death occurred hours after posting a tribute to her late twin sister.
Their deaths was confirmed by their sister, Zoe and she revealed the twins were unwell and suffering from underlying health conditions for a while.
‘They always said they had come into the world together and would go out together as well,’ she told the BBC. There are no words to describe how special they were.’
Katy’s colleagues at Southampton Children’s Hospital, where she worked as the child health risk and patient safety lead, have now paid tribute to her.
Paediatric senior Sarah Chittock said: ‘Dearest Katy, what an inspirational nurse and young lady. Would go out of her way to help others.
‘Katy always wore a smile and the most wonderful sparkly eye shadow. Your memory will continue to sparkle in the children’s hospital.’
May their souls rest in peace.
