“My beautiful Smile is pain free, living in her new body alongside Jesus. Please respect our privacy during this time of grief. Please do not ask any questions,” John wrote on his page. “If you have any pictures of us and our obvious love and adoration for each other, please post them below. Lastly… hug those you love tight and let them know how you feel. We always did.”

A cause of death has not been disclosed, but John has publicly talked about Alicia‘s battle with breast cancer in the past.

John wrote a lengthier post that was published on Thursday (February 23).

“This is a time of unimaginable sorrow for me. Grief is much too small a word. I’ve heard it said that ‘with great love comes great sorrow.’ I had no idea what that meant until now,” John wrote. “Alicia was the fuel that ran my biggest dreams. The inspiration behind every creative thought. The very fabric of my soul. The glue that held me together. I miss her more than any words could possibly describe. Pain is too small a word. Grief is too small a word. Love itself is too small a word.”

“Thank you for your thoughts, concerns and prayers. Continue to post the glorious photos you captured of my Smile and I changing our world and sometimes yours, one kiss at a time because those images help. Continue to pray for the strength of myself and my beautiful family to endure these most trying of times. Should you see me out there somewhere on the stage or in line at a coffee shop please don’t ask me how I am. The answer is ‘broken’ and it’s currently too difficult for me fathom and certainly to painful to verbalize,” John continued. “She loved you all and spoke of how dedicated and loyal you have been all these years and I love you right along with her. Bare with me down this rutted and treacherous road I never dreamed I’d have to travel. Be patient with my unimaginable process. Thank you Lord for sharing the gift of Alicia with me. I‘ll never be the same and I know that, somehow, we are still and will always be the ‘Team To Beat.’”

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to Alicia‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
