In a heartbreaking statement, the Real Housewives of Miami star explained:
"The last 24 hours have been a nightmare for my family and I. It is life once again showing me that at the drop of a hat, things can change. I can't imagine what my life will be like walking into my office every day and not seeing Herman or having our family dinners with the kids and family. We were in this for fifteen years and although we were currently separated and living in separate homes, our spiritual and emotional connection was stronger than ever. I would like to take this time to thank everyone for the incredible outpour of support that has come my way through messages, calls and social media. I am sharing this image with you that we took this past Father's day because this is how I will always remember US. "
So sad. It's clear the beauty is having a really hard time with the tragic turn of events.
