You’re a good woman and you deserve the best. You need to be happy. You need to soar. Please take care of our princess Chinenyenwa. Tell her that I love her so much. Be peaceable with everyone though not gonna be easy. Tell my family not to harbour any resentment against you. You’re a blessing to us. That’s the wish of a dying man. Don’t cry for me but pray for me. I love you and chinenye so much. Good bye my beloved.”
