"He deserves it since she lost all her children, and there are no grandchildren. I hope he will use some of the money to keep her memory alive."
"I bet he'd give away every cent to have her back just one more day."
"The husband deserves more. It should have been 200 million dollars because he gave her his kidney."
"As it should be. They were together for 27 years, and for those assuming he had no money, his net worth is 200 million. He did not marry her for her money."
"This is the kind of love I want."
@ChoupettaSucre also said:
"He fully deserves his inheritance. Let's not forget that this man gave her a kidney while her ex-husband hit her regularly. This man has restored her self-confidence and contributed to her happiness."
