“Sorry buddy ❤️❤️❤️❤️,” wrote Tamar Braxton, while Christina Perri added, “sending you so much love Allison 💔.”

The photo post was the 34-year-old Holker’s first Instagram post since Boss’ death on Dec. 14. He was 40 years old.

Boss’s body was found in a Los Angeles hotel after his wife became concerned about his whereabouts. Later that day, his cause of death was ruled a suicide by a gunshot wound to the head. He allegedly left a suicide note alluding to challenges.

Holker mourned the loss of Boss in a statement to People following news of his death.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have to share that my husband Stephen has left us,” Holker told the site at the time. “Stephen lit up every room he entered. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him.

She added, “He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father and an inspiration to his fans.”

Just days before Boss’ death, the duo celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary.
