Sarafina Wairimu first wife to the late John De Mathew has paid tribute to her husband praising him for being a great and phenomenal musician.
According to Sarafina hers was love at first sight when she met the late for the first time.
Thank you all for coming today to show your love for my husband. I don’t have to explain how John was to anyone in this room. Everyone knows he was a great man and a phenomenon musician.
It only took meeting him once to remember him forever. He is and always will be my best friend and there will continually be a hole in my heart that will never heal. John was my soul-mate.
Plain and simple. All it took was one look and I knew he was the man I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. He didn’t get the rest of my life, but I got the whole of his.
Our time together may have been cut short, but the happiness we shared together, will last a lifetime. I will mourn the loss of my husband, my best friend, my soul-mate, my everything.
But, I will find comfort in the knowledge that he loves me to the very end. John always said, “God has a plan.
We have to accept it and go with it.” We don’t know what God’s plan is, but it’s something special and that’s why He needed the heart that’s as big as the world and open to everyone.
The tribute further read
I will miss John until the day God calls me home and so will our children. But we will never feel alone because John has left behind a love that cannot be broken. Until we are together again, I’m not complete.
I’m merely here, waiting my turn. Thank you for helping me find love Forever. You have left me a piece of you in our children. To the greatest husband & most wonderful friend.
