“The reason I am posting so late is that I spent the entire day going thru 50,000 photos over the post 20 yrs,” the Real Housewives of New York City alum began in a Wednesday, February 28, Instagram video post. “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. We traveled, spent time with friends and family and most importantly loved each other till his last breath.”

 

Today would have been Bobby's 72nd birthday. The reason I am posting so late is that I spent the entire day going thru 50,000 photos over the past 20 yrs. 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. We traveled, spent time with friends and family and most importantly loved each other till his last breathe. He was beyond generous .. always picking up the check for everyone, driving everyone home even if it took him An extra 2 hours RT in crazy NYC traffic and let us not forget Camp Zarin which ran like a hotel with every bed filled every summer weekend on our boat and in our homes. There was always an extra seat at Bobby Zarin's table for the friend who needed us. How many friends did we take with to @exclusiveresorts Homes around the world. Thank you for being the most incredible husband but more importantly my best friend.
