On Friday, though doctors had prepared film producer and actress Connie Ferguson for the worst as her husband’s condition did not show any improvement, nothing could have prepared The Queen lead actress for the final moment.
Surrounded by her close friends who have been praying with her and offering her words of encouragement as Covid-19 hit her family hard this year, Connie lost her world when her husband, Shona Ferguson, died on Friday at Milpark Hospital from Covid-19 complications.
Shona’s sister Meggie Ferguson wrote: “We prayed, we fasted, we cried but God still found it necessary to call you home, it’s been a trying time but God will strengthen us … Rest in peace my brother, rest.”
Connie, whom close friends described as not having just lost a husband and the father of her kids but a lover, a friend, and a business partner, is said to be inconsolable.
Last week, a local publication published the story that Shona was fighting for his life.
A source close to the family said she was heartbroken and on the verge of a breakdown.
“She has been crying nonstop and is refusing to even eat. She is in shock. The news has really paralysed her. I wish I could take away her pain away … She knew that he was not responding to the treatment and doctors did prepare her … she lost her world.
“Shona was her best friend,” said the source about the Rockville actor who turned 47 in April.
