Our hearts are just broken for Jill Zarin.

As you’ve likely heard, the Real Housewives of New York alum’s husband, Bobby Zarin, recently lost his lengthy battle with cancer. He was 71 years old at the time of his death. So sad.

On Sunday, Zarin took to Instagram to post a loving tribute to her now late husband — and her words are beyond moving. The Bravolebrity shared:

Rest In Peace my love. Words can not express the hole in my heart. 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. 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├óΓé¼Γäót 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├óΓé¼Γäót 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.

What a devastating situation.

Jill and her family initially broke the sad news by releasing a statement on the 54-year-old’s website.

Although Bobby had been battling cancer for some time, he and his wife always remained optimistic while discussing his treatment plan.

Bobby’s funeral service is taking place today (January 15). We’re wishing the late Zarin Fabrics founder’s loved ones only the best as they continue to mourn.

R.I.P., Bobby.
