George Ikua painfully eulogizes his wife Janet Kanini

On Sunday, Mr. George Ikua posted a painful farewell message to his late wife, Janet Kanini, on his Facebook page.

Mrs. Kanini-Ikua passed away on Saturday morning after a long battle with stage 4 cancer.

Goodbye my love, he posted. He followed this with the lyrics of Good People which was performed by by Jussie Smollett & Yazz.

Sometimes its hard to pray
Sometimes its hard to stay grateful
Its painful, hurts so bad
Sometimes its hard to breathe
Its hard to keep goin
We keep holdin on to what could have been

But well get by
Well see the light
In the morning
Its gonna be alright
The circumstance
Is in the plan
Even if we dont fully understand
Why the bad things happen to the good people

Sometimes its hard to pray
I know sometimes its hard to be patient
Ooh I hate it
Yeah it hurts so bad
Sometimes its hard to believe
So hard to keep goin
We keep holdin on to what could have been

Well get by
Well see the light
In the morning
Its gonna be alright
The circumstance
Its in the plan
Even if we dont fully understand
Why the bad things happen to the good people

So much pain
Its still a lesson
Sometimes it rains
Its still a blessing
You never see the silver lining
In the cloud
And so you doubt it
You never know how much you truly have
Until you go without it
One day its gonna turn into another season
Youre gonna see that
All your tragedy
You had was for another reason
Its just a temporary goodbye
So ya gotta keep ya head high
The rain is coming down and its pouring
But joy is gonna come inside the morning

But well get by
(By)
Well see the light
(Yeah)
In the morning its gonna be alright
(Its gon be ok baby)
The circumstance
(The lord got ya)
Is in the plan
(And I gotcha)
Even if we dont fully understand why
Understand why,
Understand why,
The bad things
Happen to the good people
