Legacy Emanuel Medical Center: "Hi there. This is nothing to do with an experience of mine. Its about my girlfriend or rather my Fiancee as of just before she got Covid. She was at St. Francis hospital in Federal Way Wa. I got us both there only to find out I had it too. After a short period of time information was only given out to family. I was then told by them that she was being transferred here to Legacy Emanuel. After some time I found out from them that she passed away. Please, I need to find out if this has really happened. I love her with everything inside me and I need to have confirmation. I know she was having oxygen issues. I just found out a short while back from her daughter Amber that she had diabetes. I had no idea and we never discussed that nor did anyone tell me. I looked up how that could, or be an issue with Covid and it wasn't good. I need to have someone that was medically with her or an official person in that hospital let me know if she really has passed or not. If she has not, I want to come there or wherever she may be to be close to her. Please pass this on to the right people or staff and get a hold of me ASAP. If she is alive. Please tell her. Someone, that Kevin is here for her. That I love her and with all of my strength, I will find a way to her. If not. Any information you could give me would be appreciated more than you know. You have my e-mail and my number is 206-751-7801. I did speak to a case worker there in the beginning of her being there. She couldn't tell me much. Please get back to me. I need to know what is happening to her. Her name is Michelle Renae Barden. She is 54 years old. She has a son Jared and a daughter Amber. Thank you so much. I hope to hear from you soon." - Kevin
