One of our favorite Housewives of the past, Jill Zarin, is dealing with a heavy heart. The former Real Housewives of New York star took to social media on January 13 to pay tribute to her late husband, Bobby Zarin, who died of cancer in January 2018, and boy, what a beautiful tribute it was.
“Today is the anniversary of Bobby’s passing on January 13, 2018,” the 55-year-old RHONY alum captioned a series of beautiful photos and videos of her husband with family and friends. “It is hard to imagine a life without him, but he wanted me to move on… find love again and that ‘life is for the living.’ I want to share some photos [and] videos no one has seen with all of you. We all remember the incredible man, father, brother, friend, and husband he was. Bobby Zarin will never be forgotten. @allyshapiro and I miss him every day, but he is always in our hearts. I love you, Bobby.”
Get your tissues ready, y’all, because Jill’s post is seriously a doozy. Her heartfelt commemoration is a whole nine slides long and is absolutely filled to the brim with photos and memories that Jill, Bobby, their daughter, Ally, and their crew have shared over the years. To bookend the post, Jill started with a sweet video slideshow of photos set to “In My Life” by The Beatles and ended with a candid video of Bobby chatting with her on a beach.
Many fans and followers flocked to the comments section of the post to leave their condolences and well wishes for Jill, but a few commenters stood out a bit more than the rest.
“Sending love and thoughts your way my friend, he truly was a wonderful husband, friend, and father and he will never be forgotten by everyone that loved him. Love you,” RHOC alum Gretchen Rossi also commented on the post.
It’s nice to see Jill surrounded by so much love on such an emotional day in her life. We’re sending her the best and the biggest hugs.
