“I was able to hold my baby's hands for the last time … It was my baby. It’s like a hole in my heart, like a hole in my heart because all she wanted to do was just help people. She just wanted to help,” Leilani Jordan’s mother, Zenobia Shepherd, said.

Her mother said Leilani helped older people load groceries into their carts and into cars, but she wasn’t given any masks or hand sanitizer.“Management, leadership needed to kick in and help make sure those that are vulnerable, seniors, other people, have the help and assistance that they need so they're not put into situations to where they can lose their lives. You can't see Covid virus. You can't see Covid-19. You don't know where it's at. You don't know when it's going to hit,” Shepherd said.

“We got to take this serious. It is no time to cut back on the supplies and the resources. We need more to help. Grocery stores are where everybody goes,” she added.Once Leilani was admitted to the hospital, her mother said the drug hydroxychloroquine was administered to her, but it didn’t help.

Leilani’s stepfather said that before she died, she recorded a video on her phone saying goodbye to her family and friends. They found it once they got back from the hospital.Her mother said Leilani was selfless, never judged anyone and was nicknamed “Butterfly.” “I’ll always miss my baby. Forever. Forever. Forever,” Shepherd said.

To be clear, CV19 actually killer her...or was it pneumonia or a stroke or something else? 777mhallockgma1 😢😢😢 Tell us again Bill Oreilly why her life doesn't matter. Another death due to Donald Trump I am so Sorry for your loss. She was a Beautiful dedicated young Lady. I'm sure her loss will be felt by many.

ohlightynight Nyugodjék békében! Who is to give her face mask if not the employer. RIP angel. Your mum failed you i dont believe any story from some Africa America woman, she is not telling the real story we hope to hear the real event of how she die of covid 😢 Sad story gloomy days looks like humans have resigned to their faith our stupid govt spends millions on arms n aids to other countries which is useless when we can't even meet our emergency POTUS

So sorry for the families loss. ❤️ This suicidal to me Poor baby I’m so sorry for her mother. It broke my heart to see her suffer so bad. Your daughter was a beautiful girl. RIH. Such a fake news She was murdered by a callous, greedy psychopath. Realy? Who told u that? How we know about every peraon that dies now 😜😜😜😜😜

This brought tears to my . Hydroxychloroquine has zero deaths associated with this drug . You wouldn’t know that based on our media reports I agree workers should be given masks. Gloves Ive read are actually not a good thing cause the virus sits longer on them so its best to just keep washing your hands. If your work doesnt give u masks then get your own. Or even make your own its simple. any mask is better than none

This is saddening and unjust that someone didn’t provide any materials to her so she could prevent herself and her family from this virus. This world would be a better place with more humble and kind people Duty of care is with the employer. Lawsuit much RIP Damn. Just damn. 😢😢😢 GOOD old USA. So called great country with great wealth yet has no idea when it comes to affordable health care for all. What a fucked up country

She could've bought a mask This story also will prove to be a lie RIP and god bless 💔💔💔🙏🙏🙏😥 The underlying condition made it worse. Sad. Government did nothing to protect the people. Tax all wasted Sue the store in to the ground
