Today contributor Bobbie Thomas confirms death of husband Michael
Today Show contributor Bobbie Thomas has revealed the death of her husband Michael Marion.
The TV presenter revealed her partner died last week aged 42 following ‘problems involving several organ systems’.
She broke the news on Instagram on Sunday as she shared a trio of pictures in which the pair were holding each other in his hospital bed.
Her touching caption read: ‘Nothing is normal. Maybe nothing will ever be normal again. For me, it won’t. My husband is gone. 💔
‘With all the fear, anger, and division going on in the world right now, it’s so easy to get upset about the lack of normalcy. But I beg you, everyone reading this, hold onto what you do have right now instead of focusing on what you don’t.”
She urged followers to spread love and kindness as she continued: ‘One thing we all have is kindness. Absorb it, extend it, exhaust it. Because in the end, the ONLY thing that matters is love. If you’re lucky enough to have it, please appreciate it, every moment, every day. Especially during the hard parts.
‘There will never be enough time and some of our forevers are much too short. As I type through tears, I embrace gratitude … holding our precious son Miles and memories, of the time I did have with Michael, closer to my broken heart.’
Bobbie’s message concluded: ‘Thank you all for the love and support you’ve shown us and our families. Please go hug the people you love.’
During Monday’s Today, she confirmed her husband’s death on December 1 had not been linked to Covid-19.
She said in a statement: ‘Michael worked hard to recover from his stroke [last year] and had made such progress that he was making plans to return to work. He landed in the hospital due to problems involving several organ systems, separate from his stroke of 18 months ago, and unrelated to COVID-19.’
In 2019, lawyer Michael suffered a stroke at the age of 40.
Bobbie and Michael tied the knot in 2013 and shared a five-year-old son named Miles.
