“We have been together for 15-and-a-half years and not once was he ever a reason for my tears.” According to the site, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was on the couples bucket list.
“He made me smile and he was a gentleman to the very end,” she said. “I had a banner written ‘Adventure’,” as she explained that they had planned to hoist the banner on Uhuru peak.
