Van Halen’s iconic guitarist Eddie Van Halen’s widow, Janie Van Halen, recently posted a photo of herself and her dance partner Louie Martinez after a dance-wrestling match on her Instagram account and paid her respects to everyone that they ‘lost along the way‘ such as her beloved husband Eddie.
The professional dancer and wrestler Janie who is known for her smiling face, positive attitude, and great work ethic, has been going through a tough time for the past couple of years. In 2019, she lost her father, and some months later, in June 2020, she suffered the loss of her beloved brother.
Before she had enough time to heal, the rock world mourned the death of her husband, the iconic Van Halen guitarist, Eddie Van Halen. When she needed some moral support the most, Janie also lost her mother, a month after losing her husband. All these losses affected her deeply and she has been doing her best to heal her broken heart.
With her recent Instagram post, Janie announced that she attended her first pro-wrestling match with her dance partner Louie Martinez, which she won. In the caption of her post, she said that this triumph goes out to everyone that she and her partner ‘lost along the way’ but who will forever stay in their hearts and ‘always with us in spirit.’
Here’s what Janie said in the caption of her recent Instagram post:
“This is for all our loved ones we lost along the way. Forever in our hearts and memories and always with us in spirit ❤️
Louie Martinez Sr.
Edward Van Halen.”
