Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy, and for Australian television personality Kerri-Anne Kennerley, moving on from the grief that came after the death of her husband is still something she struggles with today.
In a new interview with Daily Mail Australia, Kerri-Anne opens up about life following the passing of her beloved husband, John Kennerley, in 2019.
The couple were married for 35 incredible years, after tying the knot in August 1984 with a lavish ceremony at the iconic Sydney Opera house.

Their blissful marriage turned into a nightmare when in 2016, John became paralysed from the neck down following an accident at a Coffs Harbour golf course. He was 75 at the time.
Kerri-Anne cared for him in the years that followed, all the way up until his sudden death in February 2019. Now, three years later the star admits she still misses everything about John.
“You know, the little things, the big things. There’s not a day… But as the years go by, I think it is ever so slightly easier. [But it] doesn’t make it any less lonely,” she tells Daily Mail Australia.
When asked if there was a time during John’s life that she cherishes the most, the 69-year-old said there was a “million” of them but goes on to say the memory she holds closest to her heart was their simple Sunday mornings.
“I always got breakfast in bed on Sunday morning with fresh squeezed orange juice and hot toast because I hate cold toast and eggs,” she recalls.
“And we just sit there and read the papers and discuss stuff about the world. You know, that really comfortable home time.”
