“We always celebrated our birthdays together with a trip. (His is the 17th and mine is 19th).
“This last trip was so special. We both celebrated each other so big. You never know when something is going to be “the last” time. But I’m so grateful that he was showered with all of the love he deserves.
“I pray he can see all of the love he’s already getting from around the world today. Honey, everyone loves you so damn much. Everyone wants you to know how important and special you are on your special day, and we ALL celebrate you.
“You are one of a kind and you certainly made my world go ‘round. I love you more than anything and miss you every minute. Your girls and I will hold on tight to each other today. And I know you’d want me to get a martini tonight, so I’ll oblige. Happy birthday, honey.”

In an interview on NBC’s TODAY, Rizzo opened up about feeling “numb” since her husband’s death but recalled her final conversation reinforced the love they shared.
“I think I said, ‘I love you dearly,’ and he said, ‘I love you endlessly,’” she said.
“I said, ‘I can’t wait to see you tomorrow.’ And then, you know, it was just all very — it was just all love.”
