“Bert would want me to still be happy and move on with life. That’s what I think is the best thing to do, and you know what? I think we’ve found a new normal and I feel very lucky.”

Although the 77-year-old is moving on, she still often shares her fond memories with her husband from over the years. 

For Christmas, Patti posted a photo on Instagram from when she and Bert dressed as Santa and Mrs Claus.

The festive posts didn’t stop there. 

She also paid tribute to her husband as she watched Carols in the Domain, as it was a reminder of when her family performed at the show in 2006.
