|Patrick Sawyer's mother Georgia Nah,says her children were good children
Patrick Sawyer the man who knowingly infected people in Nigeria with the Ebola virus is being mourned by his devastated mother who lost two children to the disease.I don't doubt it at all that Georgia Nah'schildren were good children as she put it.And it is a terrible thing for any parent to lose two kids to an illness or disease weeks apart.But make no mistake about it,Georgia Nah's son Patrick Sawyer did not behave like a good child with his despicable behaviour infecting people knowingly and contributing to their deaths.
Heartbroken mother of Mr Patrick Sawyer, the 40-year-old man, who brought Ebola to Nigeia is demanding the ashes of her cremated son.
Sawyer’s remains were burnt after his death of Ebola in Lagos on July 25.
“I can’t stand it,”. “I can’t sleep. Every day I think about them,” Georgia Nah, told NBC 10 at her Southwest Philly home, United States.
Sawyer became ill just a few weeks after rushing to the bedside of his sick sister, 27-year-old Princess Nyuennyue, who was hospitalized in early July in Liberia, where she lived with her fiancée and son.
“I didn’t even know she was sick,” said Nah as she choked back tears.
Nyuennyue died July 7-- one day after her brother visited her.
But hospital officials did not test the woman for Ebola until after her death – meaning her brother had no way of knowing he was exposed to the virus.
About two weeks after his sister’s death, Sawyer -- in Liberia since 2008 for his work with the foreign government’s Ministry of Finance -- was sent to Nigeria on assignment.
He collapsed as the plane touched down July 20 and was rushed to a hospital, where he was quarantined until his death five days later. He left behind a wife and three daughters, who he visited regularly at their home in Minnesota.
“My children were good children,” Nah said.
Nyennetue was buried in Liberia. But more than two weeks after Sawyer’s death, his family is still working to have his ashes returned to the states.
“At least send me something,” Nah said. “To know that here are the death certificates, the results of the Ebola. I don’t have anything.”
A memorial service for Patrick and his sister will be held in Philadelphia, United States on August 23.
