Rachel Gorry shares heartbreaking tribute to late husband Daniel on the anniversary of his death

Rachel Gorry has shared a heartbreaking tribute to her late husband Daniel, on the fourth anniversary of his death.

The Irish influencer’s husband was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in September 2018 – and he sadly passed away on April 1, 2020 at the age of 29.

Rachel and Daniel were childhood sweethearts, and shared three daughters together – Leah, Holly and Hannah.

Taking to Instagram this morning to mark four years since his passing, Rachel said his anniversary is a day she dreads “every year”.

Alongside a photo montage of Daniel, she wrote: “Another year has come and gone 💔Loved and missed more than you will ever know ❤️.

“The 1st April the worst day of my life losing you 💔 the day I dread every year, having to smile and put a brave face on for our girls, who are so excited for today they want to get a cake 😂.

“So that’s what we will do we will get a cake and celebrate you today as if it was your birthday 😅.”

“You’d be so proud of them they have gotten so big and so beautiful, they remind me of you everyday in so many different ways, I know you were afraid Hannah would forget you because she was so small when you passed but she talks about you everyday the stories she tells me about her daddy she’s so funny!

“Your memory will never die I promise. I can’t tell you how much we love and miss you 💔
if love could have saved you, you would have lived forever ❤️,” Rachel added.

The social media star has been single since the passing of her late husband, and previously confessed she couldn’t imagine herself in another relationship.

But back in December, Rachel admitted that her “thoughts have changed”.

During a candid Q&A on Instagram, Rachel said: “Look I suppose I’ve always been very open and honest with you, you know, in saying that I don’t ever see myself with anyone other than Daniel, that I don’t ever see myself in a relationship again…”

“Then I suppose four years pass and the loneliness creeps in and my thoughts have changed.

“I kind of feel like maybe I am ready for something or maybe it would be nice to spend your life with someone. It might be nice to have somebody there.”

“I never thought I’d be a widow at 29. To think at the time it was a bit naive I would spend the rest of my life on my own,” the mother-of-three continued.

“Now don’t get me wrong it scares me so much, I’ve never actually said that out loud.”

Rachel then recalled a recent conversation she had with her late husband’s father.

“He was saying, ‘You’re such a young woman you can’t spend the rest of your life on your own. We’ll support you no matter what and we love you. You’ll always be a daughter to us. Daniel wanted you to move on’…

Rachel explained: “It’s the words ‘move on’ hits my ears wrong. I know that sounds so silly.”

“It kind of makes me feel like that means I’m leaving Daniel in the past if I was to meet somebody and that’s not the case because Daniel is such a massive part of my life and he always will be.

“I’m such a young widow with three kids, that’s a lot for someone as well. So maybe I would just be better spending the rest of my life on my own!”

The influencer confessed she felt “guilty” at the thought of spending the rest of her life with another person.

“It’s a bit of a tricky one. But I do think that it would kind of nice maybe to have somebody and share your life with somebody maybe. Who knows, we’ll see,” she added.
