Following the death of her husband Bobby Zarin on Saturday, January 13, former Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin shared an emotional tribute to her late husband on Sunday, January 14 before his funeral.

“Rest in peace my love. Words can not express the hole in my heart,” the 54-year-old began her note which she shared on social media long with photos of herself with Bobby. “Bobby taught me what true and deep love is. Thank you my love for sharing your life with me.. for raising Allyson as if she was your own, being an amazing father and grandfather and teaching me how to be a better person.”

She continued, “You inspire those around you to be the best they can be. I will never forget you.. your legacy lives on through your beautiful children and grandchildren. I will continue to raise money and awareness for ITOG (international Thyroid Oncology Group) so maybe this won’t happen to the next guy who draws the proverbial short straw. I will continue to honor you and make you proud. You taught me so many lessons. I will turn the lights off when I leave a room and try not to lose my keys! Lists! Yes I will make lists now that you can’t remind me. Thank you to all our friends, family and fans for the most incredible love you have shown our family. The messages bring tears to my eyes and will continue reading them all in the coming weeks. I will continue my tribute in the coming days and weeks and if you want to share anything please leave messages. Tomorrow is the funeral so I will sleep now. Love Jill.”

Bobby Zarin’s battle with thyroid cancer began in the late 2000’s and he beat it back in 2009 but unfortunately it returned in 2013 and then sadly spread to his lungs and brain. Although he underwent chemotherapy infusions in the summer of 2017, the cancer progressed.

Bobby and Jill were married for 18 years, and he is survived by Jill, his three children from a previous relationship, Jonathan, David and Jennifer, as well as his stepdaughter Allyson.

Bobby Zarin’s funeral service will be held on Monday, January 15 at 10 a.m. at Riverside Memorial in New York City.
