Former Senator Ben Murray Bruce has lost his wife to cancer.
Murray-Bruce who represented Bayelsa East Senatorial District in the 8th Senate announced the passing away of his wife on Twitter this morning.
“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.”
