American woman Kenesha Antoine is mourning the death of her fiance Steven Weber Jr.
Steven drowned after proposing to Kenesha underwater while on vacation in Tanzania.
The heartbroken woman posted about the tragic accident on her Facebook account with photos and videos of the proposal.
In one of the videos, they can be seen swimming underwater and holding a Ziploc bag with a handwritten note inside. One side reads:
Will you please be my wife. Marry me???
The backside reads:
I can't hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you. But...everything I love about you I love more every day!
The American couple had visited various places in Tanzania and even shared photos of their social media accounts, a clear indication that they were enjoying the vacay.
Kenesha is yet to come to terms with the death of her lover and below is the tearjerking tribute she shared.
There are no words adequate enough to honor the beautiful soul that is. You were a bright light to everyone you encountered. You never met a stranger, and you brought so much joy to so many people. You were kind, compassionate, you regularly made me cry with laughter, and you showered me with a love like none I’d ever experienced.
You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer, “Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!”
We never got to embrace and celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives together, as the best day of our lives turned into the worst, in the cruelest twist of fate imaginable.
I will try to take solace in the fact that we enjoyed the most amazing bucket list experiences these past few days, and that we both were so happy and absolutely giddy with excitement in our final moments together.
Just a couple days before you died, you said to me, “I’ve seen a few cancer patients on this trip, and it dawned on me that this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing that people want to experience before they die. And here we are in the prime of our lives doing this. We are so blessed.”
Yes, we were, my perfect love, my angel, my soul. Yes, we were, and I will carry the blessing of the love we shared with me forever.
I will find you and marry you in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next, and the next... I love you so much, and I always will. 💔
Please pray for all the family and friends that loved him so much. Please love each other while you can, as hard as you can.
I know that wherever in the universe Steven’s spirit now resides, that is exactly what he’s doing: giving love and spreading joy and laughter.
And knowing him, always quick with an off-color joke, he’s probably entertaining someone with a story about how he royally screwed up that proposal and died while being extra.
Rest well, my sweet baby! Always know that you are forever loved! ❤️😢🙏🏽
