Evelyn Murray Bruce is dead.
The wife of Senator Ben Murray Bruce, Chairman of Silverbird Group, died as a result of complications from breast cancer.
The 63-year-old politician and his wife were married for 41 years.
The union was blessed with four children.
The former Bayelsa East senator and entertainment czar broke the tragic news on Friday on his verified Twitter handle.
“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,” Bruce tweeted.
