Valerie revealed that she spent every day at the hospital with Wolfgang during Eddie’s final days. The last words they spoke to each other was that they hoped one day maybe they could be together. Valerie and Eddie were married from 1981 until 2007. Both of them got remarried, although Valerie ended her second marriage last year.

Valerie shared about writing her book, “When I wrote it and when I did it, it was very cathartic to go through it. I didn’t intend to write a book that had all the grief in it. It was about joy. But if I left that part out, it wouldn’t show you the path to joy and how to find that even through the depths of the biggest grief you can feel.”

Happy heavenly birthday, Eddie.
