He wrote:

“Obim, you left without saying goodbye. I came to the hospital only to be told you were gone.

Seeing this brings back the memory, the love we shared and the sacrifice.

I will forever love and cherish what we shared. Obim, continue to rest until we meet to part no more.

For 4 years, I suffered PTSD. Initially, I told myself I could handle it but that was very far from the truth. It did not only affect my ability to make right decisions, it affected everything in me knowing you are no more.

Ebola snatched you away, our babies and our beautiful plan to rule our world together as man and wife.
