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.”
