Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter posted a sweet tribute to her late husband Robert A. Altman a week after his death at the age of 73.

Carter, 69, and Altman got married in 1984 and welcomed two children – Jessica and James – during their marriage.

"One week ago, my beloved husband Robert A. Altman passed away," the Wonder Woman alum began her tribute that she shared on Instagram. "Robert is the love of my life and he always will be."

Carter continued, "Our 37 years of marriage were an extraordinary gift. We shared the passion I hope everyone is lucky enough to experience in their lifetime. We protected each other and were each other's champions always."

The former Miss World USA touched on the "greatest joy of Robert's [life]," which was their children. "I see so much of Robert in them, and I know he lives on through them," she wrote.

Carter also included a message for fans. "Jessica, James, and I want to say thank you. We especially love hearing about the times you met Robert at concerts or through his work in the gaming world. He loved meeting you and hearing your stories," she wrote.

The CEO of video game company ZeniMax's cause of death is unclear, although his son James wrote in a letter that it was "untimely."
