Eddie Van Halen’s wife Janie Liszewski wrote that her “heart and soul have been shattered into a million pieces” in a new Instagram post seen here. The wife of the late heavy metal guitarist shared a photograph of their legs and feet close to one another on the beach. In the image, the two were caught in an intimate moment where their legs were crossed as they looked at an ocean vista.
Janie called her husband “my Peep” in the beginning caption. She also remarked that she never knew it was possible to cry so many tears or feel such incredible sadness.
Janie then stated that the couple’s journey together had not always been an easy one. Yet, she noted that in the end, and always, they had a connection that would always be. She wrote that saying goodbye to Eddie was the hardest thing she ever had to do, so instead, she would say “so long.”
“I will see you again soon in a place with no pain or sorrow. Please watch over Kody and I. We love you and miss you so very much. Love, your PooPee,” Janie ended her statement.
This was followed by a sequence of red hearts. Kody was the couple’s Pomeranian dog, who has his own Facebook page, as seen here.
Janie worked as both an actress and a stuntwoman before she became her husband’s publicist, reported The Inquisitr. The couple dated for three years before tying the knot in a ceremony at the rocker’s home in 2009. His son Wolfgang was his best man, and his brother, Alex Van Halen, officiated. Also in attendance was Eddie’s first wife, Valerie Bertinelli.
On September 19, Janie shared her last public photo of herself and her husband on Instagram. It can be seen here.
Fans of the guitarist liked the image over 1,000 times thus far. Many shared their condolences in the comments section of the post.
“Words will never be enough to express how much we all feel your heartache. As a fan, thank you for the light and help you gave him through the tough times we learned about. God Bless you and your family,” wrote one follower.
“I’m sorry for your loss. His memory will live forever through the incredible music he has given us,” penned a second fan.
Other Instagram users also expressed their sorrow at the loss of the rock music legend and expressed to Janie how much the work he had done in the industry was appreciated.
