“My Skat, life is just different without you Dawg. I miss you so much!” she wrote.

She went on to express that it’s through her “faith” and “complete trust in God” that she’s still standing strong.

“Go ikamogela seemo (accepting the situation) does not make it any easier. Ke go tshepa Modimo fela le go ineela mo go ene (I trust in God alone and depend on him entirely) 🙏🏾 I’ll never stop missing you. I love you always and forever.❤️ Hope you’re resting well my KING.👑”

Also missing her father, actress and casting director Lesedi Matsunyane-Ferguson, she shared a series of videos with the caption: “20 Months… missing you still hurts like it was yesterday. I take comfort in the fact that you’re at peace, but that’s it. I love you forever, Fah. 🕊️♥️ #TheSHOgoesOn.”

Messages of support have flooded in as friends and industry peers shared their messages of support for the Fergusons.

SABC’s head of local productions, Lala Tuku, wrote: “Days won’t be the same my friend… ❤️You have a handsome angel watching over you sis 😍. I pray for you always. Modimo Ke Modimo (God is God).”

Connie and Shona met on July 31, 2001, and were married four months later. They tied the knot on November 30, 2001. They welcomed their first child together, Ali Ferguson, on June 7, 2002.

And theirs was a fairy love story that inspired many people. They adored one another in their private space and they were not afraid to display their love for each other and their children on social media.
