Following the news that rock 'n' roll icon Eddie Money passed away last week, it's now being reported that he renewed wedding vows with his wife just seven months before his death. According to TMZ, Money and his wife Laurie held a private ceremony at the California Community Church in the San Fernando Valley back in February. The couple eloped three decades ago when they married, so this was an opportunity for them to finally say I Do's in front of their close family and friends.

Money had previously been diagnosed with esophageal cancer, but then wound up suffering heart issues as well, which are said to be what contributed to his death.

"The Money Family regrets to announce that Eddie passed away peacefully early this morning," The singer's family said in a statement to PopCulture.com on Friday, announcing his death. "It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our loving husband and father. We cannot imagine our world without him. We are grateful that he will live on forever through his music."
