Eddie Van Halen’s Widow Janie Shares Emotional Post On The Anniversary Of His Death


It was a year ago that Eddie Van Halen lost his battle with cancer and passed away in October 2020. On the year anniversary of his death, his widow Janie shared a very emotional tribute to her late husband. She is still finding peace amidst her grief.

Janie shared an older photo of her feet and Eddie’s resting with their dog Kody. She wrote, “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.”

Janie previously opened up about losing several family members in a row. Her brother passed away a few months before Eddie and her mother died last November. She once said, “I have okay days. I have sad, bad days. But you just have to kind of keep moving. And the things that I post [on social media] as inspiration for other people, I actually post for myself as well to kind of keep going, keep moving forward.”


Wishing Janie, Wolfgang, and Eddie’s family and friends continued comfort at this time.
