SWITZERLAND, MARCH 20 – Former Senator from Bayelsa State and co-founder of the Silverbird group, Ben Murray Bruce is grieving for his wife, Evelyn who has just died of cancer.
In a Facebook post, Murray-Bruce revealed that they have been married for 41 years.
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,
