All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has commiserated with Senator Ben Murray- Bruce from Bayelsa State over the loss of his wife, Evelyn.
Senator Murray-Bruce announced on Friday on his twitter handle that he had lost his wife of 41 years to cancer.
The heartbroken former Senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, described Evelyn as his best friend for 43 years and wife for 41 years.
Ben Murray-Bruce who shared photos which captured beautiful memories he created with his wife, stated that she will remain alive in his heart forever.
“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.”
In a condolence message released by his Media Office and signed by Tunde Rahman, Asiwaju Tinubu said: “Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences over the passing of your beloved wife, Evelyn.
“Losing an intimate person like a wife can be very painful. But please take solace in the life she lived and the sweet memories of the time you shared while alive.
“Like you said in your tweet, cancer should not be a death sentence. Together, we must all help to scale up awareness on the need for constant checks for early detection and immediate and continuous treatment.
“Please know that our thoughts are with you at this moment. My prayer is that God grant your wife eternal rest and give you, the children and all the people she left behind the strength to carry on after her.”
