In a lengthy message on her Instagram page, she stated that while May 7 is his birthday, she is in pain that she can no longer celebrate it with him in person.

She remarked that her heart had been broken once more, and she was trying to convince herself that he was not here anymore. Rita questioned his comfort in the foreign world after spending almost a month alone without his wife, children, friends, or loved ones.

“HOW COMFORTABLE DO YOU FEEL SPENDING OVER A MONTH IN A LAND YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN BEFORE ALL ALONE WITHOUT YOUR WIFE, CHILDREN, FRIENDS, LOVED ONES AND WELL WISHERS ? OHHH DEATH WHERE IS THY STING?” She wrote in part.

On the other hand, Rita stated that she finds comfort in knowing that he is watching over her and others he cherished from above, and she wishes that his light would continue to shine brightly.

“WELL, THOUGH YOU’RE NO LONGER HERE WITH US, BUT YOUR SPIRIT CONTINUES TO INSPIRE AND UPLIFT US EVERY DAY. AS WE REFLECT ON THE PRECIOUS MOMENTS WE SHARED, YOUR LAUGHTER ECHOES IN OUR HEARTS, AND YOUR KINDNESS RESONATES WITHIN OUR SOULS. YOUR ABSENCE IS DEEPLY FELT, YET YOUR PRESENCE REMAINS VIVID IN OUR MEMORIES.”
