In an emotional interview with The Mirror, Vinnie detailed his wife’s final moments.

He said that she was surrounded by her family, and that he kissed her gently, whispering, “I love you, I love you, I love you” as she slipped away.

Tanya, Vinnie’s wife of 25 years, was diagnosed with skin cancer in 2013, and fought a brave battle.

Vinnie then opened up about how he was doing without the love of his life.

“An outsider might say, he’s doing well. But in the evenings, I’ve cried almost every night,” he said.

“How am I going to go on? One of the guys at golf said, how are you doing? He said: ‘I lost my wife 14 years ago. Let me tell you, it don’t get no better.'”

He said he would never find love again.

Despite the heartache, Vinnie has received support on Twitter, where fans reached out.
