They lived together, worked together and often hit the gym together. They were so in love that they were seen as couple goals. 

Connie and Shona Ferguson often gave followers and fans a glimpse into their love story.

Shona passed away following Covid-19 complications on Friday, 30 July. 

The couple were married for 19 years and were due to celebrate their 20th anniversary in November.

Connie took to social media to pay tribute to 'my soulmate'.

"This day, 20 years ago (31 July 2001), was the day God brought you into my life, and we haven’t looked back since! Ours is a once in a lifetime kind of love. We joked about how we were going to be in our old age. How we would take turns supporting each other and being strong for each other. The irony is we have already been doing that for the past 20 years!

"Oh how God has loved me to give me YOU! We were already planning our 20th wedding anniversary in November, assuming that we had time! You and I were joined at the hip, now I feel completely off balance, incomplete, without my other half! My SOULMATE!," she posted.

She said she was struggling to process everything that had happened. 

"It all just feels like a horrible nightmare that I can’t wake up from! I feel like I’m living in a twilight zone! I keep asking God WHY? Why Lord? Please help me understand! I trust you! I trust you to see me and my family through this! Please give me and my family the strength to carry on, and continue our hero’s legacy! Only YOU can!"
