A man from Mossel Bay found a unique way to connect with his wife through soulful music after playing the accordion outside the Life Bay View Private Hospital Covid-19 ward where she was hospitalised.
The video went viral just last month and captured the hearts of South Africans who were teary-eyed by this wonderful gesture.
According to IOL, Lukas Du Preez said that he began playing the accordion for his 66-year-old wife, Marinda, out of desperation after not being able to see her for weeks and believed that she would pull through upon receiving treatment.
However, Saturday was met with despair and heartache after Marinda passed away.
“It was with deep sadness and dismay that my three children and I this morning had to say goodbye to our beloved mother and wife, who, was in all aspects, the best person we ever knew.
“She gave her life to her family and those close to her, was steadfast in her Christian faith and the rock in our and many other people’s lives,” Lukas said in a statement to News24.
