"The sun will still rise & set every day," she wrote about the boat riding through the water.

Then today, Tuesday, August 28, Frankel posted video on Instagram story of her adorable daughter Bryn Hoppy, 8.

"Mommy time heals all wounds," Frankel wrote.

Bryn was seen after she'd put a temporary gold "love" tattoo on her dog’s belly. Frankel had her girl with ex-husband Jason Hoppy; they have fought a bitter custody battle.

"Look what I did! I’m Bethenny Frankel’s daughter," Bryn said in the video.

Banker Shields, 51, was found dead of a suspected overdose on Friday, August 10, 2018 about 9 a.m. in his million-dollar Trump Tower apartment in New York.

The New York Post reported that the businessman -- and RHONY guest star -- had allegedly overdosed on prescription pills.

Shields reportedly asked his assistant to administer Narcan, which treats opiate overdoses, when he realized his life was in danger. But it was too late.

Frankel, 47, wrote to her fans, "It’s hard to breathe & I appreciate you giving me the space & support to try to do so. It’s excruciating-sudden death is no closure & constant ?s & memories. Our relationship is current so it’s painfully raw. Trying to stay healthy & move through it w tears & close friends. Xo."

Since his marriage split, Shields had dated Frankel off and on, but as has reported, their relationship was tumultuous.

They had reportedly split up just weeks before his death.
