NeNe Leakes shares Gregg Leakes final words before he tragically passed away from cancer earlier this month after a three-year battle.
During a interview with People Magazine, NeNe expresses,“it was difficult. Gregg handled a lot of things in our life. There were some things I didn’t know — some of the simple things. I didn’t even know who the lawn guy was.”
“I was having to ask him questions like that. And he said to me, ‘If you go into my office and look on the wall, I left an envelope taped to the wall.’ And so I went and looked on the wall and there was a manila folder he had stuck to the wall that said, ‘Open this if anything ever happens to me.’ When I opened it up, he had a letter to [our son] Brentt and telling us certain things like, where we needed to pay stuff and who was the accounting person to talk to because we didn’t know anything. And I thought to myself when I looked through all the stuff that he had written and the things that he had left, that that took a lot of strength.”
NeNe expresses that the love they had for over a century, keeps her grounded. “I told him I wouldn’t have chosen another husband other than him. I said, ‘I married you twice, crazy man.’”
She said she held his hand as he took his final breaths. “He took a deep breath, and then he stopped. I thought I would be scared, but I just held him and kissed him.”
