Former Nigerian senator and founder of the Silverbird Galleria announces the sad passing of his wife, Evelyn Bruce, his wife of 41 years.
The politician and entrepreneur says he’s broken and has lost his beautiful wife who had been his friend for 43 years and wife for 41 years. He said his wife had been like the sun in his life. Sharing his deepest sadness on Facebook he wrote:
“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, ❤️.”
Our hearts go out to the entire family at this difficult time.
