Robbie Hamilton started this petition to The leaders of the four nations making up the United Kingdom

Public and national support has been given to many who quite rightly deserve it because of what they have done to support the nation through the pandemic.  Yet, one group has been left out - those who have died during the period of lockdown.  It is important that we remember them.  It is important that we remember their families who have not had the funeral services or the support that they would have normally received at a time of bereavement.  Bereft of hugs and embraces that go beyond words, they have not had the people around them to offer support as they have said their farewells.  A number haven't been able to attend a funeral service.  In Airdrie we have attempted to so something on a Sunday night - initially a silence on our doorsteps at 8 p.m. and now, lighting a candle an placing it on a window ledge at 10 p.m.  In ancient times, national lament allowed a nation to vent its feelings of grief in difficult times but also offered support to those whose difficulties were the greatest.  Can we not come together and show our respect for those who have died and offer support to those picking up the pieces who all too often feel alone?  Let's see if together we can get the Prime Minister and First Ministers to act.
