The late Pantera and Damageplan guitarist, Dimebag Darrell Abbott’s longtime girlfriend Rita Haney posted a recent photo of Dimebag on Instagram today.

As you might check out the post of Rita right below, she broke her silence about Dimebag’s death and revealed her feelings after the 15th anniversary of his lover’s pass away.

Interestingly, one of the users who liked the post was Aerosmith legend Steven Tyler’s daughter, Mia Tyler.

Here is the long and meaningful letter of Rita:

“Well here we are on D-Day.. 15 yrs… has it really been that much time. I sure miss those eyes.. and you telling me to come get in my favorite place, then tap the space between your neck and shoulder.. and you knew it really was my favorite place ♥️ being strapped up inside since yesterday has given me lots of time to remember so many different moments.

The only urge today I felt the need to check the time. Then realized… This was about when I was backing out of the garage in the Rock Box and got the call from Vinnie.. strange how things can still be so vivid after all this time. I think about how I couldn’t stay mad at you cause you would make me laugh.. and even now when I tear up.. you make something funny pop in my head.

So I suck it up and swallow hard. which has been a little difficult today since I’m wrestling with this sore throat and cruddy chest thing.. not the best time to be stuck on the couch.. but Cat Dracula has been a pretty good nurse prescribing cuddles and kisses all day. This is usually the kinda shit I write in my journals.. apologies for rattling on.

The point of this post is to Thank you. Thank You, everyone, for loving him and remembering him.. also thank you for all the kind thoughts and words today that I have received on all social platforms, by text, VM, etc. you guys remind me why you live your best life!!! ⚡️I still have the best life. Thank you, Darrell⚡️♥️”
