“I’ll never see you again for the rest of my lifetime. You loved me loud and proud. Thank you, baby. Protected me, Prayed for me, and inspired me.

“I find it hard to breathe, let alone find the words to explain how much I love you.

“I’m really going to miss all the special moments we’ve had. This really hurts!

“I can’t come to terms with the fact that I’ll never hear you say you love me. I’ll never hear your laugh.

“We had plans.”

Nadia Nakai’s emotional tribute is a touching reminder of the pain of losing a loved one. It highlights the importance of treasuring our time with those we love and cherishing our memories.

In her tribute, she added, “I realise you’re the one who spent the rest of your life with me. I don’t know why things happen the way they do, but I’m now questioning God. Why would he bring us together to only take you away? I just don’t understand. I don’t know how I’m going to do this, going on with my life without you, I just can’t.”

Rest in peace, Kiernan. You will be missed.
