Said their daughter was 7 and lived at boarding school since the wife died
to lung cancer 7 years ago.
He said he was leaving Canada at 5:40pm on Fri and would text me before he
boarded flight. I didn’t hear from him until Sat around 12:40pm

Good day my darling. I'm sorry I am just texting you now . I arrived just
shortly before mid-day, but we were delayed at the London Heathrow airport
because of some alleged security issues and it was quite unpleasant.
Wasted about 3hours waiting for my luggage. Took the city transfer taxi
service, only to arrive the hotel and find my work bag missing, just a
little bag I have some of my documentations and identity cards as well as
my credit cards. I had to spend the entire afternoon searching for it. I
went back to the airport in search for it, though I will say the security
operatives were kind enough to assist through the search but all to no
avail. They also requested I contacted the cab service company to notify
them about the unfortunate incident just in case there is any information
that could lead to the whereabouts of my bag but as far as the search goes,
there has been nothing positive forthcoming . I sure do hope someone finds
it as i had to tender a formal complaint to this effect to the immigrations
office as I am very sure that's the last place I could remember seeing my
luggages . Must be honest, it was quite an unexpected arrival for me but I
didn't want to bother you with any of it coupled with the terrible network
reception out here. I'm sorry I probably must have had you worried . Write
me when you can. I hope you had a much better day than I. ❤

I loved my mom much and i was wiling to do anything for her and also make her happy. I wish i could see her one more time and tell her how much i love her and hug her one more time. My mom died when i was 20, that was the most painful and worse thing in my life, she was the best mom in the world. My mom was a christian and she loved my dad so much that is why she refused to get married to another man. well that's all i can say because i hate to talk about it, i am telling you this because i like you very much and i see you as a very special person. i want to get more close to you and maybe be more in the future. please don't let my sad story make you run from me.

Dear you complete me baby my heart bit for you my angel, honey I try to put this feeling into words, but failed miserably. This feeling of being both scared and at peace, of having both butterflies and a sense of calm, is a feeling that I have only dreamed about. As the days continue to pass by, my love for you continues to grow. I never thought I had the capacity to love anybody as much as I love you right now. Yet, my love for you continues to mature, growing beyond the realm of my heart. It seems that you have become the fiber of my soul, the very reason for my existence. Baby When I am writing with you here, I feel alive. You bring to me a happiness that no one else ever could. You bring to me a love I have never known before.

Hello good day and how is your day going today, sorry for my late response, today I received a call from South Africa for a contract I have been waiting for since, so I will be coming to South Africa this weekend and I will be happy to meet you my love

How are you doing this evening and what happened you don’t write to me again?

I want you to know that you mean everything to me now and I cherish the moment we spend writing to each other

I want you to know that I’m really happy that we meet each other here
I promise you that I will do everything for you and I promise to love you forever and ever.

Why you don’t want to give me your number?
I thought you are happy that am coming to SA, so why is hard for you to give me your number?
Like I said before I will be coming to SA on Saturday and I can’t wait to meet you my love

How are you? I guess fine as often,? I am very sorry for my late response, it really warms my heart to be in your country. I’m writing you this message to let you know that I have finally arrived in your country and I arrived a couple of hours ago but i have been doing some clearance at the Airport. I am in the guest house where I was staying. I'm staying a suit with 1 bedroom and sitting room, I just decided to send a quick note. I've missed you, and I hope that this special relationship to a stronger level, you are always in my head lately. hope all is well with you, my love,because i had a stressful journey down here.

Hey dear, it has been a terrific day for me over here trying to ship the materials out this country. I have not been
allowed to ship the shipment out of the country because I was accused of tax evasion. I never expected this to happen because I have paid for tax over the goods I bought but unfortunately I have to pay more tax than I did so right now I have been charged to court with Unlawful attempt to minimize tax liability through fraudulent techniques such as deliberate under-statement of taxable income or willful non-payment of due taxes. This means that they thing I am intentionally attempting to evade paying taxes which is against the law, and I have been charged to court unless I pay the fine that has been imposed on me to pay before the shipment can be sent out.. And I don’t have enough money with me again to clear the taxes here.
I don’t know now
I’m just confused here
I was planning to come and visit you on Monday
After shipping everything today but everything is complicated now.
I need to clear the taxes
I have to pay 2500 dollars
I’m just confused now because I’m out of cash here
Yes that’s a lot of money
I don’t know what to do now?
I feel ashamed of myself telling you this, but I want you to know that you are the only hope I have now to clear my taxes here. When I come to visit you I will pay you back my love
If they charge me to court I’m going to pay double of the money. And I don’t want that to happen my love

I will collect bank account from the tax office here
Oh thanks so much sweetheart
You are really the best
I promise to pay you back my love
Yes i know that my love
I promise to love you forever and ever my love
I feel ashamed asking you but I want you to know that you are the only hope I have now my love
