Josifini Bese, the wife of the late Isireli Temo, says, she will always cherish the love her husband gave her and their two children.

Fighting hard to hold back her tears she recalled how the France based- player treated them with so much love, care and respect.

“It’s hard to believe that my husband is no longer with us,” she told SUNsports.

While waiting for the arrival of her husband’s casket at the Nadi International Airport yesterday, the 29-year-old Kabara native from Lau spoke of the last time they had spent together with him.

“Temo came home in September and spent a month with us and we had a good time together as a family. He took us out to the hotels where we spent most of our time together,” she recalled.

“He returned to France and not even a month after that I was shocked to receive the news of his death and as of now I’m trying to be strong for the kids.”

She said before his death, Temo was complaining to her that his club was not paying him well. Ever since he returned, he was not paid. Josifini said she would now have to start looking for a job to support their children.

“He was our breadwinner and from now on I will try and look for work to look after our children as they are now in school- Wati is Year Three while Setoki is in Year One,” she said.

Temo will be buried in Suva today.
