Screenwriter and producer Heidi Ferrer is being remembered by her husband after her untimely death at age 50.
The “Dawson’s Creek” writer died by suicide on May 26. Ferrer had experienced intense physical pain due to symptoms of long-haul COVID-19 in the months and days beforehand, her husband Nick Guthe – also an esteemed writer and director – told Fox News on Friday.
“My beautiful angel, Heidi, passed over tonight after a 13 month battle with Long Haul Covid,” Guthe wrote on Twitter and in an emotional post shared to Ferrer’s personal blog. “She was an amazing mother. She fought this insidious disease with the same ferocity she lived with. I love you forever and I’ll see you down the road.”
In his post, Guthe noted that Ferrer had received a COVID-19 vaccine. “A lot of people with long-haul COVID have been told the vaccine might help them fight the virus,” he elaborated to Fox News. “Unfortunately, in her case, it did just the opposite.”
