Connie Ferguson, 51, on Saturday night paid tribute to her late husband in a moving letter on her Instagram account.
The country was in complete shock on Friday afternoon when news broke that Shona Ferguson had died due to Covid-19 complications. Conrad Mwanza, a representative from the Ferguson Foundation confirmed .
The 47-year-old had made such an impact in South Africa’s entertainment industry that it was unimaginable that he could be gone so soon.
"This day, 20 years ago (31 July 2001) was the day God brought you into my life," Connie wrote as she described their love for each other as a "once in a lifetime kind of love".
"We joked about how we were going to be in our old age. How we would take turns supporting each other and being strong for each other. The irony is we have already been doing that for the past 20 years."
In her tribute to her husband on Instagram, Connie write: "You were already planning our 20th wedding anniversary in November assuming that we had time. You and I were joined at the hip, now I feel completely off balance, incomplete, with my other half. My soulmate."
According to Connie she’s struggling to process everything that’s going on: "It feels like a horrible nightmare that I can’t wake up from. I feel like I’m living in a twilight zone."
"You’ve owned my heart from the day we met 20 years ago today, and there you will live until we meet again! Rest now angel. I miss you, I love you, and I will never forget you!"
