John Schneider reflects on his final moments with his wife Alicia

John Schneider says the feeling of “okay is still a long way off” as he continues to process his grief at the death of his wife Alicia Allain Schneider earlier this year.

In an emotional interview, the ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ actor recalled his last conversation with Alicia, who died on February 21 at the age of 53. As it turns out, his last words with her weren’t entirely honest, possibly to her advantage.

“Of course I told her it was okay,” Schneider said recalled to People this week. “‘If you’re tired, if you want to go to your grandma’s, if you want to go to your grandpa’s, if you want to go, that’s fine. You go.’ And that was the whole truth.”

“But then I lied because I said, ‘Don’t worry about me; “I’m fine,” he added. “That was a lie to tell, but she knew it. OK is far away.”

Schneider and Alicia, a filmmaker and music producer, have been together since 2015 four years later they married in Louisiana. In addition to their romantic partnership, the couple collaborated on music and numerous films, including Poker Run (2021) and Tres Leches (2022).

Although Schneider stayed by his wife’s side throughout her illness, he was not there when she breathed her last: “I’m pretty sure she was waiting for me to be gone because I think she knew that I wouldn’t be able to handle it.” .”

“The last thing I said to her was, ‘I love you more than anything and I have several very long-term plans for you.’ And that’s true, because eternity is a very long time, and I believe it. I’m counting on it.”

Since Alicia’s death, Schneider has paid tribute to his wife with a tattoo her thumbprint. He’s also working on a new album: “We are still us“, this is dedicated to her memory.

Still, he told People, “I need to get to the point where I look around and see where she is, not where she isn’t.” And I’m trying, but it’s hard. I kind of love her more by the minute, but that kind of makes me miss her more by the minute.”
