Steven Weber Jr. drowned while proposing to his girlfriend Kenesha Antoine underwater while they were vacationing in Tanzania this week.
Kenesha Antoine wrote on Friday about the heartbreaking accident on Facebook sharing in photos and video the happy moments as it happened moments before the tragic ending.
Antoine, an attorney, 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 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.’
In the photos and video, Weber swimming underwater and holding a nylon bag with a handwritten note inside.
One side he wrote: ‘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: ‘Will you please be my wife. Marry me’
