The sad news came this morning about the death of the wife of a former Senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Ben Murray-Bruce.
Ben Murray-Bruce broke the news thin morning on his Twitter handle, He tweeted, “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.”
The former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Reno Omokri have sent condolence messages to Ben Bruce over the death of his wife.
My good friend @benmurraybruce, the news of your wife’s death saddens me. You and I have been friends for years & now more like brothers. I grieve with you and yours. GOD giveth, GOD taketh. Your wife lived a beautiful life. She will be deeply missed. May her soul Rest In Peace.
