John Schneider shared that he is getting himself prepared for a 'rough' Christmas after his wife’s death.
The Duke of Hazzard star said to Fox News Digital that this will be his first Christmas since wife’s death, sharing that the grief will "never" go away.
Schneider, 63, reflected on his misery and told the outlet, "It's going to be rough. Grief is a funny thing. Grief will sneak up on you and smack you in the back of the head. Truly, when you least expect it".
He noted that the sadness only surrounds you when you're having a great time adding, "It's almost like grief says, ‘No, no, no, no, no. You're not going to smile today, you're not going to laugh today".
Moreover the actor also claimed,"the notion that grief will ever go away is silly. Grief will never go away".
On the contrary, he suggested that grief is "something we learn to carry" and he is making the best out of it by learning this skill.
The country music singer exchanged marital vows with Alicia Allian in 2019.
However, in a twist of fate, the producer passed away earlier this year at the age of 53, following her battle with breast cancer.
After their marriage the singer became a step-father to Allian’s daughter, who she had from her previous relationship.
Schneider is a father of three children; 35-year-old Leah, Chasen, 31, and 27-year-old Karis, whom he shares with ex-wife Elly Castle.
As for the holiday festivities, according to Bloomer Advance, the singer will spend his time with his step daughter and her husband Daniel Turner.
