Ben Murray-Bruce who was the senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, has lost his wife to the cold hands of death after a battle with cancer.
Mrs Evelyn Murray-Bruce died at the age of 43-years-old and is survived by several children with her husband.
The common sense senator made the news known via his twitter page where he shared that himself and his children were all broken by the incident.
“I’m broken. Just lost my beautiful wife to cancer. She was my best friend for 43 years and my wife for 41 years. Cancer is real, but it shouldn’t be a death sentence – awareness, and early detection and treatment are key to survival. I miss her so so much. I’m broken.
“Our children are devastated, I am too. But I have to be strong for them. Please put our family in your prayers. Like the sun, my wife was a blessing and touched the lives of everyone she met.
“Though she’s gone, she’d remain alive in our hearts forever.”
“I miss you, my sweetheart, and my most beautiful girl, Evelyn Murray-Bruce. Forever yours, ❤️.”
