My uncle passed, my grand­moth­er passed, my dad passed, then my oth­er uncle passed its lit­er­al­ly like 7 – 8 days apart it’s hor­rif­ic,” Anthony Franklin told WDSU. 58-year old Anthony Franklin Sr. was remem­bered for his love for music and his fam­i­ly.
61-year old Timothy Franklin was con­sid­ered the base­ball enthu­si­ast in the fam­i­ly.

Their fam­i­ly said they are not sure how they were infect­ed with the virus, but con­firmed that they all got sick almost at the same time.
“I want the world to know if it hap­pened to the Franklin fam­i­ly it could hap­pen to any fam­i­ly,” Jacqueline Franklin said. “Let’s take this seri­ous­ly my chil­dren have to bury their father, their pre­cious grand­moth­er and their uncles. Let’s not let this hap­pen to anoth­er fam­i­ly.”
