I blessed the day I married you my darling. I thank God for giving you to me. I thank your parents, your brothers, sisters, uncles and relatives for breeding you into a virtuous woman. I glorify the Almighty for overlooking my iniquities and blessed me with a near-perfect friend as a wife.
When I cry as I often do, Altine, U wipe my tears. When I feel disturbed and become scared of the future, you smile and re-assure me with the words in the Bible. You pray ceaselessly, you fast when you are not asked to, you dedicate your life to God, me and your children…I thank you my darling. I thank you for being the woman behind the scene in sustaining the Brand OKIKI
In you I have found love, I have found peace, I have found an irreplaceable friend and darling…
On behalf of all our children, I celebrate you our Mummy and wish you the best of years to come…”, he wrote.
