"It's our 9th anniversary!!" she wrote. "I couldn't be more grateful to celebrate this perfect magical day!!!

I LOVE YOU #happyanniversary #bosswedding2013"

Holker shared a statement with PEOPLE on Wednesday: "It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us. Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him."

She continued, "He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans. To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt. I am certain there won't be a day that goes by that we won't honor his memory."

"We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our 3 children. Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you," she concluded.

Just one day after their anniversary, Allison shared a joint video of her and Boss, who was a talented performer, dancing to Alicia Keys' song "December Back 2 June," which Allison called their "HOLIDAY SUNDAY FUNDAY DANCE !!! With my lover @sir_twitch_alot 🥹 #thebosshouse #holidayfun #dance #bossstudios"
