Ingrid Vega Speaks on Her Husband’s Death

David ‘Dido’ Vega

Ingrid Vega was intubated on December twelfth, one day after her husband, newly elected area representative of Corozal Bay David ‘Dido’ Vega, died.  Forty-seven-year-old Dido was intubated about a week before he died from COVID-19 complications.  It was a tough time for the Vega family and one that Ingrid has still not come to terms with. Ingrid says that she saw her husband shortly after being hospitalized, but she was intubated when he was buried, and so she didn’t get to say her last goodbyes or properly mourn him. Ingrid shared more about how she is coping with the tragedy.

“I asked myself what happened and sometimes I question why. I dont question God. I have built so much faith and I dont question God about why he took my husband. I believe he has a plan for everyone. I remember that my plan was to come back – before I was intubated I remember asking him to give me a chance to come back to my girls.   So, going back to the elections to what happened, it was a big hit. I wasnt even present at my husbands funeral. My daughter was the one telling me about what happened at the funeral. As is, I am not even on Facebook right now because I am not ready to see the funeral, to see the post of him because I am still dedicated on recovering. I know that grieving would delay my recovery. I remember going to see my husband and telling him that I cant grieve him right now because I have to get back to my girls. I shed couple tears and I went back in and ready. So I havent grieved him yet because I am still in recovery. It is going to be a while. It is a day-to-day, slowly, we are getting there.”
