Citizen TV News anchor Willis Raburu is reportedly in the United States of America with wife Marya Prude for some alone time following the loss of their daughter at the beginning of the year.

Documenting the trip on his InstaStories, Raburu shared breathtaking views of his address with numerous emotional messages and songs dedicated to his deceased daughter.

In one tear-jerking message, the 10 over 10 host penned down a letter, and in it, imagined how life would have been with her around. 

“My beautiful daughter, some days are easy some days are so hard. Today I woke up trying to imagine what it would be like to watch you sleep, (that’s the only image I have of you) what it be like you hold warm fingers, what a sleepless night would feel like. What it would be like to go to work tired because you kept me up at night, who you would look like now? What colour of your skin? If you would drink as much milk as I did when I was your age.

“My daughter, you are an angel now, or so they tell me and when I look up to the sky sometimes I cry, sometimes I laugh, I want you to make so much noise in heaven, or the multi-verse you are in, I want you to have all your the people who are with you there say “Yeap that’s Willis’ child” I miss you so much, it’s funny that I have a picture of you but even before I look at it, your face is ingrained in my heart, etched in my soul, tattooed in my very essence,” he wrote.

He went on to apologize for being so broken and vulnerable when his wife needed him the most and noted that he needs help to get through the grief. 

“My daughter, my sweet lovely beautiful daughter, I’m sorry that you have to see daddy weak and in grief and not the pillar of strength that you and your mother need, but my daughter, daddy loves you, since He listens to you talk to Him and tell Him, daddy doesn’t understand but daddy needs help. Rest In Palaces, RIP because you are royalty.”

According to Prude, in a message not long after the passing of their daughter, God left her when she needed Him the most.

"Everyone is so quick to tell me about God. What they don’t know is that every way I knew Him, He was tested and He didn’t prove Himself. So, as they say, you should know God for yourself. I now can say, I don’t know Him. And I don’t think I want to know him coz He left me when I needed him the most," she wrote.

Defending his wife, however, Raburu, explained that every one of mourns differently: “It’s ok to be you when you are in pain, I think that’s the only true way you will heal. The only true way I will heal!

“I don’t know much about those watching over me but I know my daughter is up there… I love you.”
