Player said he's saddened every day by the loss of his longtime wife. 

"I cannot fathom that it's now been one year without the love of my life by my side. I've been keeping busy as a means to distract myself, but I feel Vivienne’s absence every day. Despite my family’s pain, it brings me solace knowing that she's at peace. We love and miss you, Viv," he wrote.

Player is one of the most-influential figures in the history of the game. His longtime wife was an incredible woman.
