The Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider, 62, has been honoring his late wife Alicia Allain with a series of touching posts on the social media following her passing on February 21.
Back in 2020, the couple revealed in an interview with Fox & Friends that Allain had been diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer, adding that she had been “three years into a five-year shelf life.” At the time, they shared that her cancer was in remission.
Allain was a filmmaker and music producer, mum to her daughter Jessica, and a stepmother to Schneider’s children. The pair tied the knot in 2019.
Schneider shared a post on Facebook Wednesday. “My beautiful Smile is pain free, living in her new body alongside Jesus,” he captioned a photograph of himself and his late wife, along with an image of the pair holding hands with their wedding rings.
“Please respect our privacy during this time of grief. Please do not ask any questions,” he continued.
“If you have any pictures of us and our obvious love and adoration for each other, please post them below.
“Lastly… hug those you love tight and let them know how you feel,” Schneider added. “We always did.”
An obituary published online by Wilbert Funeral Home in Plaquemine, Louisiana, said Allain died on 21 February at her home surrounded by her family.
Schneider posted a photo of him and Alicia kissing and wrote, “I simply have no words but…I miss you desperately, Mrs. Schneider!”
In another tribute, he shared a photo of him and Allain from Christmas time, with a deep message about grief and sorrow. “Alicia was the fuel that ran my biggest dreams. The inspiration behind every creative thought. The very fabric of my soul. The glue that held me together,” the Smallville star wrote. “I miss her more than any words could possibly describe. Pain is too small a word. Grief is too small a word. Love itself is too small a word.”
Schneider asked people to bare with him as he travels a road he ‘never dreamed’ he’d have to travel. “I’ll never be the same and I know that, somehow, we are still and will always by the ‘Team To Beat.’
Our thoughts and prayers are with John Schneider and his family during these times of grief.
