400m hurdles champion Nicholas Bett’s widow Brenda Cheruto is yet to come to terms with his death.
Bett passed away leaving behind two widows and children though Brenda (the second wife) was not recognized despite being the one better known to the public. She was unfortunately blocked by her partner’s family from burying him.
‘Mama Kylie, I love you from my heart and one day you will attest this’, read Nicholas Bett’s last message to wife
The athlete and Brenda were blessed with a beautiful daughter named Kylie and their social media pages were filled with photos of what we can only assume was a happy family.
Brenda who’s always sharing emotional posts about her late husband, recently penned a letter to him, which moved many. She wrote;
Continue to Rest In Peace until we meet again
I love you so much . We miss you, the emptiness in me in Kylie’s. You always wanted me to be in the field and now I’m working on it babe …, everything you and madam lrma Reyneke taught me
..you soo prepared me for this and I’m grateful

She’s getting things done despite crying and walking with a empty heart behind closed and opens doors.
