‘I Miss You Desperately’
“I simply have no words but… I miss you desperately Mrs. Schneider,” Schneider, 62, wrote on Facebook on Sunday alongside a photo of himself with Allain.
On Monday morning, Schneider took to Facebook once again to open up about his grief over the loss of his wife, who he often referred to by the nickname “Smile.”
“6 days since my world changed forever: This ￼is one of my favorite pictures,” he wrote alongside a photo of Allain. “For me it says it all. My Smile was taking a rare rocking chair break on our back porch in the middle of running ‘Bo’s Extravaganza’ (Kid Rock year I believe) and loving every minute of it. Walkie-talkie, high heels rocking her cut off shorts and, of course, Louisiana mud.”
“I have never known anyone so in their element while doing ’10 things’ (thanks Phil. She lived and loved that nickname) at once,” he added. “You can see the weight but also the joy of immense responsibility in that beautiful face. ‘Suck it ip, Buttercup. Bring it on!’ We should all face our responsibilities with such abandon and vigor. I miss you my Smile. I’m so glad you came to Atlanta.”

Allain’s Cancer Battle
People Magazine reported that Allain had publicly announced in 2020 that she’d been “diagnosed with stage 4 HER2 negative cancer.”
“She was three years into a five-year shelf life,” Schneider said at the time, with Allain adding that she was taking a holistic approach to fighting her illness.
“I went into like a speed course of reading what path I was going to take,” she said. “I decided to do keto for cancer, CBD oil and then ground myself in minerals. I really got into a really rigid regime.”
Schneider and Allain met in 2015, and they got married four years later in September of 2019. He was previously married to Tawny Little from 1983 to 1986 and Elvira “Elly” Schneider from 1993 to 2019.

Allain Passes Away
Schneider made the sad announcement last Wednesday that Allain had passed away.
“My beautiful Smile is pain free, living in her new body alongside Jesus,” he said. “Please respect our privacy during this time of grief. Please do not ask any questions.”
“If you have any pictures of us and our obvious love and adoration for each other, please post them below,” he continued. “Lastly… hug those you love tight and let them know how you feel. We always did.”
Allain was an actress who owned her own entertainment company called Maven Entertainment, and she produced nearly 20 films from 1995 to 2022, with two projects still set to be released. During their marriage, she and Schneider teamed up to enter the music world by producing over 100 songs together.
