Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has posted a moving tribute to her late husband David Goldberg on her Facebook page. Her partner of 11 years, Goldberg was the chief executive of SurveyMonkey and father of the couple’s two children. He died unexpectedly of head trauma on Friday after collapsing while exercising in a gym in Mexico where he and Sandberg were vacationing. Sandberg thanked friends and family for the extraordinary “outpouring of love over the past few days” and praised her late husband’s giving nature and dedication to the couple’s children.

“We had 11 truly joyful years of the deepest love, happiest marriage, and truest partnership that I could imagine… He gave me the experience of being deeply understood, truly supported and completely and utterly loved – and I will carry that with me always.”
