The funeral for Bobby Zarin took place Monday in Manhattan, and was attended by some of his closest reality show co-stars who came to say goodbye.
Jill Zarin held her late-husband’s service at the Riverside Memorial Chapel. Among the guests were Bethenny Frankel, Kelly Bensimon, Sonja Morgan and Danielle Staub.
Donald Trump’s ex-wife, Marla Maples, also showed up to honor 71-year-old Zarin who passed away over the weekend after a long battle with cancer.
Jill penned a touching tribute to her husband before the service, and said “words can not express the hole in my heart.”
Rest In Peace my love. Words can not express the hole in my heart. Bobby taught me what true and deep love is. Thank you my love for sharing your life with me.. for raising Allyson as if she was your own, being an amazing father and grandfather and teaching me how to be a better person. You inspire those around you to be the best they can be. I will never forget you… your legacy lives on through your beautiful children and grandchildren . I will continue to raise money and awareness for ITOG ( international Thyroid Oncology Group) so maybe this won’t happen to the next guy who draws the proverbial short straw. I will continue to honor you and make you proud . You taught me so many lessons. I will turn the lights off when I leave a room and try not to lose my keys! Lists! Yes I will make lists now that you can’t remind me. Thank you to all our friends, family and fans for the most incredible love you have shown our family. The messages bring tears to my eyes and will continue reading them all in the coming weeks. I will continue my tribute in the coming days and weeks and if you want to share anything please leave messages. Tomorrow is the funeral so I will sleep now. Love Jill
