» » Heartbreaking final message of father-of-five, 38, who died of bowel cancer the day before funeral for his wife who died of the same disease

A devoted father-of-five who died of bowel cancer the day before the funeral for his wife made a heartbreaking final video.
Omena Ubiaro, 38, had fought the cancer for three years before he died on September 4 in a Wolverhampton hospice. 

The widower, grieving for his wife Makeda Ubiaro, who died aged 38 on July 29, focused on raising money for his five children, aged seven to 19, in the final weeks of his life. 
In an emotional video filmed on August 16, a weak and bed-bound Mr Ubiaro said: 'Thank you so much to everyone that's been supporting myself and my family.
'Myself and my five boys, we've just lost my wife, they've lost a mother, and they've also lost their best friend as well.'
He went on to thank people for their prayers, thoughts, gifts, and for trying to make him laugh.
He added: 'I know at times people say 'Be strong, be strong, be strong,' but sometimes guys, it's tough.
'Where do I find that strength from? I cannot lie. It has been the most toughest thing that a husband and a father has ever had to face.'
He ended the video with a pledge to beat the illness.  

HIS HEARTBREAKING LAST VIDEO 

Hello, good morning, this is Omena here speaking. Today is August 16. I just want to say thank you so much to everyone that has been supporting myself and my family. Recently myself and my FIVE boys, we've just lost my wife, a mother and also lost a best friend as well. It's been difficult that's why I've not able to contact anyone back to say thank you. 
But I've done this video to say thank you so much to everybody, for your prayers, for your thoughts, for the gifts, the times you've tried to make me laugh. Words can't explain, it's been difficult for every one of us. It's been difficult for the boys, it's been difficult for myself and I know people have said 'be strong' but sometimes guys it's tough because I'm thinking where do I find that strength from? That extra strength to be strong? But that's where my faith in God comes in where I have to dig deep and find that extra faith in God. 
'I cannot lie it has been the toughest thing that a husband and a father has ever had to face or deal with, but it's only been easier with support and help from friends like yourself. I want to continue to say thank you so much. I am still in hospital, I am recovering from an infection right now, but I will get through this. Thank you so much, I will speak again soon.'
