Two of the most important moments in Mandy Beckerson’s life came when she gave birth to her two children. A third happened when she took her dad to the hospital three months ago.
Beckerson went to her parents’ Dearborn Heights’ house on March 29 and waved to her dad, Rich Beckerson, from outside rather than going inside, because the novel coronavirus was spreading in Michigan. Two weeks earlier, he had been showing symptoms of the virus but couldn’t get a test.
