Connie Ferguson is remembering her late husband, Shona Ferguson, two years after his death.
The Botswana-born South African actor and producer sadly passed on in July 2021 a short illness. The actress used social media to share her feelings in honour of and in memory of her late husband. Shona’s presence is still very much alive in her heart and thoughts, she said, and their beloved memories maintain a particular place in her life.
Connie noted that, while she feels Shona’s presence, the fact that she will never see him in his physical form can be overpowering at times. She finds consolation in the Lord’s embrace, who consoles her and their family, allowing them to move forward, hope, and dream.
The actress is still holding on to Psalm 73:26 as a reminder of where her actual strength originates from. She thanked Shona for teaching her to believe, since it is the only way to live.
“XXIV My LOVE.❤️ I can’t believe today marks the second anniversary of your transition! Time has become so strange to comprehend. You’re still so alive in my heart and in my mind and in the memories we shared.
“I still feel your presence so much, but the thought of never seeing you in your physical form again overwhelms me from time to time. But the Lord has cuddled me and our beautiful family in His arms, and we continue to move, to hope, to dream.🙏🏾
“Psalm 73:26. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. I hold on to this Psalm every time I need to remember where my strength comes from. Thank you for teaching me to BELIEVE, because that is the ONLY reason I’m still standing today.
“We still do a lot of the things we did together, travel with the fam, eat your favorite food, play your favorite music, dance and laugh! Yes we laugh a lot!😂 And every time we do we can literally hear the echo of your laughter in the midst of ours!
“You are just unforgettable man!😍 Truly one of a kind. God loved me so much he gave me you, and although it seems like it was only for 20 years, it was for eternity, because a love like ours never dies. I LOVE YOU FOREVER . Keep resting my SKAT. Till we meet again,” Connie Ferguson wrote.
