Marya Prudence has pointed out that most times, family and friends forget that the man is also grieving the loss of a child.

Speaking in a recent interview with Switch TV for World Infant Loss Day, Marya explained,"For men it's different they also go through loss and they also hurt emotionally. I can remember when I had lost my daughter."

Adding, People would come to the hospital to comfort me but didn't ask him (Willis) how he was. Even though he was also hurting. Even men go through postpartum."

In the past, Willis Raburu has been grieving the loss of his daughter, Adana the best way he knows how.

In social media post, he wrote, "It (the pain) never goes away. I will always remember my Adana." 

The Citizen TV Presenter cum news anchor penned down an emotional letter to her late daughter Adana, confessing that sometimes he is overwhelmed by the reality that she is no more.

“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 would be like to hold your 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 color 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 in the multi-verse you are in,” reads part of the letter.

The media personality also revealed that he has a photo of her late daughter, that tends to remind him of the precious gift he had.

“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.

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. #QueenAdana”.
