“She died at 4:40am this morning. My gem of inestimable value, my support system, my best friend, my everything- She’s gone.
“My consolation is that in her lifetime, I gave her not just everything that money could buy, but most importantly,I gave her my presence, my time, my everything.
“On uncountable occasions, I will go to her house to hug her and play with her for no reason but love, the kind that only sons share with their mums. I love you mum, and I miss you. This one hurts so bad. Forever yours.”
Margret Murray was the third and last child of her parents. She was born into the family of an Englishman, James Lee from Britain and Bessy Lee, a native of Bayelsa state.
Her father was an engineer and had worked with the Nigerian Marine while her mother was a full house wife.
