The Return of Jill Zarin!

Jill Zarin has definitely been getting a lot of support in the wake of her husband, Bobby Zarin's, passing last weekend. Bobby's longtime love told E! News just this week that she's been feeling "overwhelming love" since his death on January 13. In fact, she added, "Ramona [Singer] has been incredible. She texts me, she e-mails me, she showed up at the hospital early on." And on Friday, Ramona headed to Instagram to remember Bobby and support Jill, writing, "Friends for life @mrsjillzarin. We love you Bobby!"

Friends and family gathered on January 15 for Bobby's funeral held in NYC at Riverside Memorial Chapel. Bobby passed away at age 71 after a battle with cancer. He was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009. Jill confirmed in November 2016 that Bobby's cancer had returned. He was hospitalized in July 2017 due to complications from his illness. The Zarin family first shared the news of his passing on on Saturday, January 13. "With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer," the Zarin family said in a statement. "There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone, for all your love and support during this difficult time."
