It's been three years since PEOPLE reported that the 91-year-old Playboy founder passed away at The Playboy Mansion from natural causes, surrounded by loved ones who still hold him close to their hearts.

At the time of Hefner's passing on September 27, 2017, he had been married to Crystal Hefner since the last day of 2012. But despite their six-decade age gap, Hefner and his December 2009 Playmate model lived a wonderful life together, which she recalled in her tribute.

When they first wed, Crystal was 26 and Hugh 86, and since his passing, Crystal found love again.

CRYSTAL'S TOUCHING TRIBUTE

While she expressed gratitude for the time she spent with the late Playboy founder, Crystal still finds it hard to believe that three years had gone by since his passing.

"Thank you for always being my greatest ally, teaching me the definition of kindness, and making me feel extremely important and adored for ten years. I will be forever grateful," Crystal wrote alongside a beautiful picture taken with her late husband.

CRYSTAL FOUND LOVE AGAIN

When they first wed, Crystal was 26 and Hugh 86, and since his passing, Crystal found love again with the spaceship engineer, Nathan Levi.

When Levi turned 32 last month, Crystal called him her "favorite person" in a sweet tribute on his birthday, which they spent at the Four Seasons hotel in Punta Mita, Mexico.
