In an Instagram post, the US-based Veteran wrote: “It’s been 17 years but it still feels like yesterday. Not sure I am handling it better than last year but I am trying. The pain never goes away but time helps me deal with it somehow.

My happiness is that we made the best memories together and that keeps me going. I am sure you know the girls have made me so proud. I remember the day we did this song together in the studio.

You sang your verse and I fell in love all over again. You winked at me from the vocal booth and I blushed. When you came out you hugged me and said you meant every word.

I miss you so much Jay, words cannot express it enough for me. We will never forget you. I am grateful to God that I got to do life with you no matter how short. A great man, the best husband and the most amazing dad. You will always be in our hearts. Love you forever.
