Wolfgang Van Halen has shared a post honoring his father, Eddie Van Halen, on the one-year anniversary of the iconic guitarist’s death.
“You fought so hard for so long, but you were still taken away,” Wolf writes alongside a photo of him and Eddie smiling and playing music together. “It’s just so unfair.”
He continues, “I’m not OK. I don’t think I’ll ever be OK. There’s so much I wish I could show you. So many things I wish I could share with you. I wish I could laugh with you again. I wish I could hug you again. I miss you so much it hurts.”
Wolf adds that he’s “trying to do my best here without you, but it’s really f***ing hard.”
“I hope you’re still proud,” he says. “I love you with all of my heart, Pop. Watch over me.”
Eddie died October 6, 2020, following a battle with cancer. He was 65.
