Both Wolfgang Van Halen and Eddie Van Halen’s widow have posted tributes to the late VAN HALEN guitarist on the first anniversary of his death.

Wolfgang Van Halen wrote: “One year.

“You fought so hard for so long, but you were still taken away. It’s just so unfair.

“I’m not ok. I don’t think I’ll ever be ok. There’s so much I wish I could show you. So many things I wish I could share with you. I wish I could laugh with you again. I wish I could hug you again. I miss you so much it hurts.

“I’m trying to do my best here without you, but it’s really fucking hard. I hope you’re still proud.

“I love you with all of my heart, Pop. Watch over me.”

Janie Van Halen (née Liszewski) also left a tribute to the late guitarist by sharing a photo of her late husband, with only their feet visible, along with their dog, writing: “I think about you every single day. Your smile, your laugh, your kindness – in every single way.

“I miss this, I miss us, I miss you, and I try my best to carry on the way you would want me to. But my Peep, some days, that’s really hard to do.

“This will never get easier because there really is no getting over you. The only solace that I can seem to find is knowing you are with god and truly free.

“Until our souls find each other again, please keep an eye on me.

“I love you and miss you so much.

“Love, Your PooPee and our Kody too”.
