Who is Mary Agyapong?
Now, 13 months later, the heartbroken widower of Mary Agyapong is seizing the opportunity to honor the NHS worker with the Remember Me memorial at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Miss Agyapong died of the virus on Easter Sunday last year at the height of the first wave, leaving behind her two young children: Mary, a few days old, and her son AJ, a toddler. .
Her widower, Ernest Boateng, says plans for the lasting tribute to coronavirus victims will bring her children “much comfort and comfort” as they are forced to grow up without their mother.
Wholeheartedly endorsing the Daily Mail’s campaign to raise funds for the project, the attorney-in-training said: “I congratulate St. Paul’s for bringing this idea up and the Daily Mail for supporting it. It is simply indispensable. ”
The 31-year-old added: “We are one people, regardless of race, gender or religion… so it is essential to do this together.
“These days, weeks, months and the past year have been the hardest part of my life, as well as the lives of many others.
“We are fighting a common enemy, Covid-19, which has taken away our loved ones and the people we hold dear.
Cause of Death
It was a tragedy that shocked the nation even at the height of the Covid pandemic – a 28-year-old nurse who died just days after giving birth to her baby girl.
“It is very essential that we come together as the UK to celebrate those on the front lines who have paid the ultimate price and to remember all the loved ones who have died.”

Miss Agyapong was 35 weeks pregnant when she became ill with the virus. She died April 12 at Luton and Dunstable Hospital just five days after giving birth by emergency cesarean section.
She had worked at the same hospital near her family’s home in Luton until mid-March, well into the third trimester, as coronavirus cases soared across the country.
In a cruel twist, her father Stephen hers, 56, an NHS health care assistant, also died of Covid-19 just days before her, but she never learned of her death. They were buried side by side in a cemetery in Northampton.
Boateng said: “This permanent memorial will be a significant physical tribute to honor lost people like Mary and her father.
“And it will be a place for my children to remember their mother and her grandfather.”
He said the “strong, capable and vibrant” nurse had been so excited to have a baby girl, but she never got to know or hug the baby he named Mary in memory of her.

Boateng, who like his wife is originally from Ghana, said that although the two never met, baby Mary already had her mother’s cheerful and playful personality.
He is comparing her legal background to being a single parent to the children.
He said they had recently celebrated Mary’s first birthday, a bittersweet milestone for her family. And she described how her three-year-old son AJ asks about her mother every day.
He said: “My little girl never knew her mother, but my son still has memories of her. He asks about her every day. She is almost four years old and she is feeling that hole that she has left in our lives. ”
