"Pain is too small a word. Grief is too small a word. Love itself is too small a word," the 62-year-old actor previously said.
John Schneider continues to grieve the loss of his wife Alicia Allain who died at home on February 21, surrounded by friends and family. While he did not reveal the cause of her death he shared a series of posts on Sunday dedicated to his late wife. "I simply have no words but… I miss you desperately Mrs. Schneider," the actor captioned one photo of the two of them kissing each other.
The Dukes of Hazzard star shared another where he gave her a kiss on the lips and wrote, "For me, this is what love looks like." The 62-year-old also opened up about the grief he was feeling in another post. "This is a time of unimaginable sorrow for me. Grief is much too small a word. I've heard it said that 'with great love comes great sorrow.' I had no idea what that meant until now," he said.
Schneider described his wife as "the fuel that ran my biggest dreams. The inspiration behind every creative thought. The very fabric of my soul. The glue that held me together. I miss her more than any words could possibly describe. Pain is too small a word. Grief is too small a word. Love itself is too small a word."
He went on to thank everyone for their prayers and concerns and requested that they "continue to pray for the strength of myself and my beautiful family to endure these most trying of times. Should you see me out there somewhere on the stage or in line at a coffee shop please don’t ask me how I am. The answer is 'broken' and it’s currently too difficult for me fathom and certainly to painful to verbalize."
Alicia Allain Schneider, a filmmaker and music producer, who lived in Holdren, is survived by her spouse John, her daughter Jessica Ann Dollard, her parents Michael and Linda Marino Allain, and her brother Brandy Michael Allain. She was described as "a proud mom and smile to her husband" in a moving obituary. The actor who married his wife in 2019 has asked for privacy and grace during this time. "Please do not ask any questions," the widower added. “If you have any pictures of us and our obvious love and adoration for each other, please post them below," he wrote in a post. "Lastly… hug those you love tight and let them know how you feel. We always did.”
