Model Paulina Porizkova have remembered her late husband Ric Ocasek in a moving tribute on Instagram two years after his death.
The 56-year-old shared an unseen image of himself and the car’s frontman who looked happy on vacation in New Orleans and reflected on their time together in the caption.
“It has already been two years. It has only been two years,” Porizkova began the long post. “This photo is from our last vacation. Cafe Du Monde. He brought me here for many years to celebrate the day we met, May 4, 1984.
“We wanted to spend a most romantic and wonderful weekend in New Orleans. He was not a big drinker, but here we once tried hurricanes, the laptops on the street, and got so drunk that we could not find our way back to our romantic little inn. “
“So many memories. And in the 35 years I knew each other, an overwhelming amount of them were wonderful,” she concluded. “This is where I want to park. With those twenty-five years of amazing memories. My love, you know you are missed every day.”
