It is a sad time for young attorney, Kenesha Antoine, who lost her boyfriend, Steven Weber Jr., by drowning after he proposed to her underwater.
It is not strange to see couples trying to make a lasting memory of how they proposed to their partners and this leads to them making grand gestures just to make the moment a more special one.
Well, an American man from Louisiana, Steven Weber Jr., drowned after he proposed marriage to his girlfriend under water.
The couple had been on holiday in Tanzania when the incident happened. The girlfriend, Antoine, recently shared the tragic video of the moment her man proposed just before he drowned, on her Facebook page.
In the video, Weber could be seen wearing goggles and flippers as he held out a note with words written on them. The words on the note read: “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!”
On the other side of the paper, the young man asked Antoine to marry him as he proceeded to bring out an engagement ring. Antoine on the other hand was heard screeching and giggling with excitement as Weber proposed.
All this was before he drowned. According to reports from The Sun, it is believed that Weber ran out of breath and fell unconscious.
Reacting to the tragedy, Antoine shared a video of Weber’s last moments on Facebook as she explained that she never got the chance to say yes to his proposal.
She wrote: “There are no words adequate enough to honor the beautiful soul that is Steven Weber, Jr. 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!"
