"For now, the emptiness continues to give me that glare. I hate the very thought of my existence while you lie six feet under. I miss you baby, so so much. You were my world, kibeti changu. I have nothing else left to live for. I want to protect you, hug you, chum your cute cheeks and tell you how much I love you. Even in death, I love you," the post read continued.

According to her friends, Gaitho committed suicide due to depression.
