In the early evening of June 8, more than 100 mourners from North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale gathered across the street at Manor Park to light candles and share memories of a beloved colleague who fell to COVID-19.

Pinpoints of candlelight flickered in the dusk as phlebotomist and pastor Larry­dean Goodridge, who had prayed for so many others over the years, became the subject of other people's prayers.

"There were so many people depending on her," her daughter Peaches Goodridge, 27, of Mesa, Ariz., said. "She didn't even have it in her to think this was going to happen."
