Taking to Twitter, Khaya Dlanga shared a series of tweets that detailed the type of relationship his gogo and granddad had.

“My grandfather, Alfred Kaiser Boyce, reaching into his pocket to leave a love letter he had written to his wife at her funeral. He left it in the casket. He never told anyone what he wrote her. (My mother corrected me, I thought he was reaching for a handkerchief.)”, he shared in a tweet.

Dlanga added his grandpa never truly healed after his gogo passed away, adding he loved her with all his heart.

Dlanga went on to share how his grandparents met and apparently Boyce had to kidnap his grandmother from her betrothed husband.

Dlanga added he wanted to learn from his grandfather, especially when it comes to respecting women.

“I hope to be as loving, kind, gentle and strong as he was; and never to think that raising a hand, disrespecting or belittling a better half as a show of my manhood”, he said.

The one of a kind love story touched the hearts of tweeps, who described the couple’s romance as beautiful and exceptional.
