Together for years, Luis Suarez and Norma Franco were planning to get married just after Thanksgiving.

But instead of a wedding, family members are now planning a memorial service after they both died last month.

The couple was not vaccinated but had plans to so they could visit with family at their wedding, loved ones said.

But they both contracted COVID-19 before getting it.
