“I am saddened beyond belief that my ex Steve is no longer with us. It is a terrible end,” Hurley wrote on Instagram along with photos of the two. “Our time together was very happy and I’m posting these pictures because although we went through some tough times, it’s the good, wonderful memories of a sweet, kind man that matter. In the past year we had become close again. We last spoke on our son’s 18th birthday. This is devastating news and I thank everyone for their lovely messages.”
