Indeed, love is beyond the throes of sickness, ill health and even death. Recently, a Kenyan man named Bernard Mulolo did not let love deter him from letting love lead him. He and his lover Grace Anyango has wowed many with their sweet love story.
Bernard and his woman are HIV positive but that has never blocked them from falling deeper in love with each other. Rather, they have deepened their love and grown it into something worth appreciating.
However, the duo who share a four-year-old daughter have still not tied the knot but Bernard found the perfect solution to that.
Speaking to Lynn Ngugi, the correspondent of a media house in Kenya, Bernard said he wanted to surprise his lady with a ring to seal their undying love for each other.
He then concocted the perfect plan and popped the question during Grace’s birthday celebration. Grace who was caught unawares first thought she was just going home to pick a bottle of water when she met her friends and family all waiting for her.
“I remember asking him what plans he had for my birthday and he said he had none since it would fall on a Monday. My sister-in-law told me we would go for a meal of roasted meat,” the bride-to-be said.
That was not all. The beauty found a box on the table and when she opened it the cake read ‘will you marry me?’
Soaked in tears, Grace turned to her love-struck man who just stared at her and tried to comfort the sobbing beauty.
Bernard then took out a ring, got on one knee and asked his damsel if she could be his for the rest of his life. “Yes,” Grace answered as she fought back tears.
“You have been there for me from the beginning and you have accepted me for who I am,” Bernard said.
