Jill Zarin emotionally paid tribute to her late husband Bobby on the one-year anniversary of his death from cancer.

The Real Housewives of New York star, on Sunday via Instagram, posted a reel of photos of Bobby from throughout their marriage, writing as a caption, "Today is the anniversary of Bobby's passing on January 13th 2018. It is hard to imagine a life without him but he wanted me to move on... find love again and that 'life is for the living.' I want to share some photos & videos no one has seen with all of you. We all remember the incredible man, father, brother, friend and husband he was. Bobby Zarin will never be forgotten. @allyshapiro and I miss him everyday but he is always in our hearts. I love you Bobby ❤️."

The shots, set to the song "In My Life" by The Beatles, show Bobby kissing Jill, enjoying a boat trip, smiling with family members at their home, and other happy moments.

As readers know, after Bobby's tragic death, she found love again with Gary Brody, 55.

"I haven't been alone since I was 20, what am I going to do," Jill, 55, asked Bethenny Frankel on RHONY cameras after Bobby's death.

The Bravo star had daughter Ally Shapiro with first husband Steven Shapiro, and Ally also recalled her beloved stepdad on January 13.

"1 year without you has felt so long yet so short," Ally wrote on Instagram. "But I know you're with our dog ginger in some chic hotel room, wearing a robe and slippers, having your shot of orange juice and watching Law and Order or the Honeymooners."

Sadly, Bobby succumbed to thyroid cancer last year at age 71.

Devoted Jill had kept vigil at Bobby's bedside during his final days.

She told fans at the time she was cherishing every last moment with her beloved husband.

Last year, Jill told Us Weekly about her new boyfriend, whom she started dating six months after losing Bobby, "Gary very much respects the grieving process I am going through and has been an incredible friend to talk to."

The reality TV star also marked what would have been Bobby's 72nd birthday in 2018.

"Bobby's birthday was always extra special because we always knew in the back of our minds that the cancer could come back at anytime and to live life to the fullest. So we did," Jill said.
