The coronavirus has brought heartache to thousands of families across Greater Manchester.
More than 2,500 people have died in our region’s hospitals alone.
Tragically, this number continues to rise as we head into the cold dark winter months.
Behind the grim statistics we publish each day, are human beings who led rich and fulfilling lives.
They touched the lives of others and had their own impact on the world.
At the Manchester Evening News, we have pledged to pay tribute to the special people who have died with this terrible disease.
We will remember each and every person we can.
Earlier this year, we launched the Loved and Lost series, to honour that pledge.
It’s a chance for our readers to share their special memories of the cherished people who died after contracting Covid-19.
Scores of people have been in touch with stories and photos of the mums, dads, grandparents and siblings who were taken too soon.
From the football coach who loved his family, to the school receptionist with a passion for travel, we have paid tribute to hundreds of people over recent months.
We have vowed to continue this mission.
If you want to pay your respects to someone special to you, fill out the form here.
We will include your tributes in our Loved and Lost coverage to ensure every special person is remembered in the way they deserve to be.
