This is not indicative of everyone who said "COVID-19 is a hoax" or "quit wearing a mask and don't get the vaccine, you moron," but it is a testament to what happens when karma smacks you in the goddamned face:
The Galveston County community is grieving the loss of Dickinson City councilmember H Scott Apley. The 45-year-old died Wednesday morning, just days after testing positive for COVID-19.
After learning of Apley's passing, Dickinson Mayor Sean Skipworth said the community is coming together to show support for Apley's family during this difficult time.
"When I was very young, my father passed away very young, and one of the first things I thought of was that he's got this baby and he's going to grow up and not really know his dad," said Skipworth. "I know what that's like, and so I feel really awful for him and Melissa, his wife, and the baby especially."
Apley leaves behind his wife and 5-month-old son, who both tested positive for COVID-19.
