Bernie Mac’s Last Moments

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Bernie Mac’s wife of 30 years, Rhonda speaks on her last moments with him:

“He didn’t look good to me and I knew this could be it.” The couple had their last exchange a day before his death, as Rhonda stood vigil by his bedside. “I said, ‘Hey Bernard. How are you?’ and I kissed his forehead,” she recalls. “He shrugged his shoulders, like ‘I’m tired’ and I said, ‘I know you’re tired.’ Later on that night, it took a turn for the worse.”

Now facing her life without Mac, Rhonda says her devastation “comes in waves,” adding she still feels her husband’s presence. The day after his death, she listened to the song “Thoughts and Wishes” by Hamilton Bohannon, a tune the couple considered “our song,” Rhonda says. “I was singing it and a chill just came over me and I knew it was him,” she said. “I get through because I know he’s in a better place now.”

    My heart goes out to her. She has to adjust to living alone after being with him for 30+ years. Her whole life changed when Bernie passed away. My prayers go out to the both of them,

  • Lady elle

    I’m so glad she found love with him for 30 years.

    I’m also glad that she was with him through his final stage of life here on earth.

    It is the one thing that anyone who love’s their mate deeply would want.

    I wish for her peace, loving memories and fond words as this will be a hard time for her, their daughter and others who loved him for him.

    Rest in Peace Uncle Bernie

  • Just Sit and Be Pretty

    Awww, how sad…I feel for his family and know that his wife is really feeling this loss. Still can’t believe Uncle Bernie’s gone.

  • biracial bombshell

    This story just made me get tears in my eyes. My prayers are with Rhonda and their family. Being married 30 years is a blessing and although physically he is no longer here…they’re bond is still as strong as ever b/c his spirit will never leave her heart. God Bless and R.I.P. Bernie…we all love you!

  • I'm Just Me (STILL FLOATING ON CLOUD 69) VIRGOS STAND UP!!

    WOW…that is very powerful and real. My thoughts to Rhonda and the rest of Mr. Mac’s family. Wow!

  • I'm Just Me (STILL FLOATING ON CLOUD 69) VIRGOS STAND UP!!

    Is it me or did the lady that play the wife on the show seem to really embody the wife in this pic. I can so see that. They did a good job casting her. Sorry, forgot the young ladies name.

  • LdyK ( wishes she was on an island....but NOT Turks and Caicos...I don't like bites)

    I cannot even imagine what it would be like. I have trouble watching the Bernie Mac Show. It pains me to see him and know they’ll never be another show.

    REST IN PEACE.

    That was sooo sad. I will pray for her strength. I can’t even imagine. I had no idea he was in pain, suffering. His life was so private. This is the first picture i’ve ever seen of his wife. He is in a better place now and he will forever be in our hearts. RIP Bernie Mac
