Steven Weber died while trying to propose his girlfriend Kenesha Antoine underwater in Tanzania. It was Antoine who wrote about the tragedy in a heartbreaking post on her Facebook page on September 20.
A video shared by Antoine showed Weber swimming underwater while holding a note in a ziplocked bag. The note read, “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.” When turned over, the note read, “Will you please be my wife? Marry me???” Then Weber produced a ring before swimming out of the shot.
Antoine wrote on her page, “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.” Antoine went on to say that during their trip to Tanzania, Weber had told her what a once-in-a-lifetime trip they found themselves on. Antoine said of Weber, “Yes, we were, my perfect love, my angel, my soul. Yes, we were, and I will carry the blessing of the love we shared with me forever.”
According to his Facebook page, Weber worked at St. Christopher’s Addiction Wellness Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the city that he also called home.
Antoine said that she believed Weber is now spreading love and joy throughout the universe. She added, “And knowing him, always quick with an off-color joke, he’s probably entertaining someone with a story about how he royally screwed up that proposal and died while being extra.”
