(CNN)A family in Georgia is mourning after a 5-year-old boy -- described as someone who had "nothing but pure love" -- died just days after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
The family said they noticed that Wyatt's tongue was white on July 12, and rushed him to their local emergency room where he was diagnosed with strep, staph and Covid-19.
He loved his momma and his sister so very much, and he was always looking for ways to help," he wrote, adding that Wyatt liked to wave at people in grocery stores because he knew it would make their day.
Wyatt's dad and 8-month-old sister, Alyssa, also tested positive for Covid-19, along with his maternal grandmother, who was at the house, according to Summey.
Wyatt's family is in quarantine as they struggle to make sense of their loss, Summey said.
"I wasn't supposed to be able to have children, so Wyatt, he was my boy before I could have a boy," Summey said.
She described Wyatt as her 3-year-old son's best friend, and "the most loving, joyous kid," who thought everything was fun.
