Actor John Schneider has found a way to honor his late wife and help others who are also grieving loss.
In life, there are plenty of good and happy moments that bring an abundance of joy. Getting married, having children and watching children graduate are moments that create joyful, cherished and long-lasting memories.
However, unfortunately, there are also way too many excruciatingly painful periods throughout life. Losing a spouse is one of the most gut-wrenching and agonizing experiences anyone will ever endure. But actor John Schneider, with his latest album, hopes to provide some help those going through that dark valley.
The Dukes of Hazzard star mentioned that he plans to release an album dedicated to the memory of his late wife, Alicia Allain, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The outlet reports that Alicia passed away in February following a four-year cancer battle.
John mentioned that he and his wife were frequent collaborators, often producing films and music together. Now he has a specific aim he hopes to accomplish with his latest batch of music, the album We're Still Us.
"Now that my much, much, much better half is not here but waiting for me, I am trying to honor her professionalism and trying to honor her skill," he said.

"But the final product is going to be healing for those who are going through this... statistically speaking, two people get married, one of them is going to die first,” he said.
John understands the separation is only temporary and expects to see his wife again in Heaven.
