(FOX NEWS) -- Steven Weber Jr. never got to hear his girlfriend say “yes” after popping the question underwater during their trip to Tanzania this week.

Kenesha Antoine took to Facebook to confirm the death of her fiancé Friday in a touching tribute where she shared their final moments together.


Antoine shared a video of Weber, a Louisiana resident, where he can be seen in diving gear with a note in a plastic sealed bag.

“I can’t hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you. But... Everything I love about you I love more every day,” the note which he held up to the glass read.

Weber flipped the paper over: “Will you please be my wife. Marry me???”

“Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!” Antoine said but her fiancé never surfaced to actually hear her.

“We never got to embrace and celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives together, as the best day of our lives turned into the worst, in the cruelest twist of fate imaginable.”

The circumstances surrounding Weber’s death were not immediately known.

Antoine said that despite her grief she was thankful for the “bucket list experiences” they enjoyed on their “once-in-a-lifetime” trip.

“I will find you and marry you in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next, and the next... I love you so much, and I always will.”
