Janie Van Halen Opens Up About Her Grieving Process After Eddie Van Halen’s Death, ‘It’s Not Easy’
In an interview with Tony & Dwight, Eddie Van Halen‘s widow Janie Van Halen talked about how she has been coping with the loss of her husband and admitted that it hasn’t been easy for her always.
As you may know, Van Halen’s co-founder and renowned guitarist Eddie Van Halen sadly passed away on October 6, 2020, after his long and vicious battle with cancer. Since his son, Wolfgang announced the passing of his father on social media, Eddie’s fans and family have been mourning by sharing their feelings and best memories about the guitar legend.
Recently, Janie Van Halen joined a conversation on the Tony & Dwight show on NewsRadio 840 WHAS and opened up about her own grieving process after her beloved husband’s death. Considering Janie has to cope with the loss of her brother, husband, and mother almost within the same year, she seemed to have some difficult times to overcome.
During the interview, Janie admitted that she has been doing the best she can even though it’s not always easy. Van Halen added that she sometimes has okay days and sometimes bad days that she feels upset. As a professional dancer and wrestler, Janie also mentioned that having a dance partner, who also experienced the losses of his father and his sister’s boyfriend almost at the same time, provides her a person that she can grieve together.
Here is what Janie Van Halen stated about her grieving process of Eddie’s death:
“I’m doing the best I can. I have okay days; I have sad, bad days; but you just have to kind of keep moving. And the things that I post on social media as inspiration for other people, I actually post for myself as well to the kind of keep going, keep moving forward.
My dance partner also had two losses almost at the same time — his dad, and then his sister’s boyfriend. So we kind of support each other in our loss and our grief. And it helps — it definitely helps. And then, obviously, my family members and friends — close friends. I do the best I can. It’s not so easy, though.”
