and I …love him dearly. His death was a
bombshell, it was …Oh this life has deprived

moment of my life, I … I lost me. Divine Favor
was only a baby, he was 5 months old. I was
devastated. I didn’t know how to go about
moving on. He had a career that could support
us, he never approved me working. ‘

provision for insurance, life assurance,
investment …’ Hannah nodded slowly. ‘It was
