(WXYZ) — Congresswoman Debbie Dingell is opening up about the loss of her husband, former U.S. Representative John Dingell.

In a social media post early Friday morning, Dingell told friends that her heart was broken as she mourned the loss of her one true love.

She wrote: "My true love is gone. The tears are flowing pretty freely as I miss the man that made me whole. One can know it is coming, but nothing prepares you for the hole in your heart. He was my one and only true love."

On Wednesday, a source close to the family told Action News, Rep. John Dingell was in hospice care after being diagnosed with cancer.

Debbie Dingell's office released a statement yesterday saying John "died peacefully" at his Dearborn home Thursday night. He was 92.
