Valerie Bertinelli, the ex-wife of one of the world’s best guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, shared a post on her official Twitter page after Van Halen’s death. Bertinelli wrote an emotional message for Van Halen and also shared a beautiful picture of the two holding their son, Wolfgang Van Halen.

The iconic guitarist, Eddie Van Halen had been battling with cancer for a long time. Eddie was diagnosed with tongue cancer in 2000, however, after several treatments, he recovered from it in 2002. Sadly, last year, it was discovered that Eddie has been undergoing throat cancer treatment, and yesterday his son Wolfgang Van Halen announced that Eddie lost his battle against his cancer and unfortunately passed away.

Here is what Wolfgang Van Halen said about his father:

“I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning.

He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I’ve shared with him on and off stage was a gift.

My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from this loss.

I love you so much, Pop.“

Valerie Bertinelli and Eddie Van Halen had been married for 26 years until 2007, and the couple has a son, Wolfgang Van Halen who is also a musician. After Van Halen’s death, Bertinelli shared a farewell message and a lovely picture of their family on her official Twitter page.

She thanked him for changing her life and giving her their child. She also revealed that she and Wolfgang were there in Eddie’s last moments.

Here is what Valerie Bertinelli said in her goodbye:

“40 years ago my life changed forever when I met you. You gave me the one true light in my life, our son, Wolfgang. Through all your challenging treatments for lung cancer, you kept your gorgeous spirit and that impish grin. I am so grateful Wolfie and I were able to hold you in your last moments. I will see you in our next life, my love.”
