Janie Liszewski, 50, shared an emotional Instagram post Wednesday where she wrote that she ‘never knew it was possible to cry so many tears or feel such incredible sadness’.
Eddie Van Halen’s widow said her ‘heart and soul have been shattered into a million pieces’ as she paid tribute to her rock star husband who lost his battle with cancer this week.
Van Halen, guitarist and co-founder of the iconic eighties band of the same name, died aged 65 Tuesday after a decade-long battle with throat cancer.
Liszewski broke her silence over his death in a heartbreaking social media post Wednesday, one day after her husband died.
‘My husband, my love, my Peep,’ she wrote alongside a photo of the couple’s feet as they sat on a beach.
‘My heart and soul have been shattered into a million pieces. I never knew it was possible to cry so many tears or feel such incredible sadness.
‘Our journey together has not always been an easy one but in the end and always we have a connection and love that will always be.’
Liszewski and Van Halen met in 2007 when she began working as his publicist.
