Classic Quotes by Bernie Mac and Rhonda McCullough about their relationship:

"I know you're tired, but don't leave me." Rhonda McCullough 8/9/2008
"I was singing it and a chill just came over me and I knew it was him. I get through because I know he's in a better place now." Bernie Mac
"He said, 'You never seen a black man as pretty as me.' And I said, 'No, I sure haven't.' And he said, 'Girl, you know I'm so beautiful.'" Rhonda McCullough 8/15/2008
"He didn't look good to me and I knew this could be it. I said, 'Hey Bernard. How are you?' and I kissed his forehead. He shrugged his shoulders, like 'I'm tired' and I said, 'I know you're tired.' Later on that night, it took a turn for the worse." Rhonda McCullough 8/15/2008
"I still have moments where I cry, and then I get up and say 'okay' and take a deep breath. God gives me the strength to go on." Rhonda McCullough 11/24/2008
"Life with Bernard was a roller coaster. [But] there was always lots of humor in our home. He had my back and I had his. That's what kept us together for 30-plus years." Rhonda McCullough 11/24/2008
"I could smell his cologne. I inhaled and I said, 'You're here. You're here.' I was turning around, and I said, 'Hey, Bernard.' It stayed with me for about five minutes; I was very comforted. I don't always feel him. But I think he comes when I really need him." Rhonda McCullough 11/24/2008
"It was just too many things going wrong. He looked in my eyes, and they just looked so sad to me; I think he knew. Somewhere in the spiritual realm, he kind of knew what was going on. Once he passed away, they let us come in, and he just looked so peaceful, so calm. We cried. Just seeing him and hearing him and knowing we're not going to see him again...I miss him every second of the day." Rhonda McCullough 11/24/2008
"I haven't moved anything. His clothes are still here, his shoes. Just like it was. I went into his closet and had a meltdown. I was just trying to see if I could smell him on anything, his suits, his shirts. There will probably come a point when I will get rid of his clothes. Right now, I can't. Rhonda McCullough 11/24/2008
