Ms Hogan also posted a tribute to Hawi the day before his funeral.
She called Hawi a ‘wonderful husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend’.
‘I have so many wonderful memories with you growing up as a kid and watching you and Carol become parents to those beautiful boys,’ she wrote on February 21.
‘I promise to help look after them and always be there for them all. R. I. P Mick its not goodbye, its see you Later (sic).’
It comes after new details emerged of widow Ms Gonzelez’s last ditch effort to fulfil her desire to have a baby with her late childhood sweetheart by asking doctors to extract his sperm.
Ms Gonzalez urgently applied to court for the procedure to be performed last week after her husband was gunned down outside a gym in Sydney’s south.
He was buried at a traditional Islamic ceremony on Thursday afternoon – with tensions flaring between police and limousine-riding funeral guests, and Ms Gonzalez herself finding herself locked in an angry confrontation with online trolls.

Hawi’s wife Carolina Gonzalez (right, Hawi on left) made an urgent application to obtain her late husband’s sperm within hours of his death
Court documents obtained by Daily Mail Australia revealed the sperm procedure could only be performed with investigators examining his murder present.
‘The Coroner… advised … that the deceased is situated in a locked zipped bag and that the bag cannot be unzipped without the presence of detectives,’ said affidavit written by Ms Gonzalez’s lawyer.
Gang squad detectives had no objection to the procedure being performed.
The court approved the operation – but Ms Gonzalez will need the court’s sign off to use the sperm to get pregnant via IVF.
Hawi’s funeral service on Thursday was monitored by a small army of police.
A large crowd of men who arrived at the service in three white limousines were stopped on the way to Hawi’s burial by bikie-busting Strike Force Raptor.
One officer, Raptor 13 – Senior Constable Andrew Murphy – drew his Taser and shouted ‘you’re going to get searched’ as tensions flared between the groups.
Police were seen on every corner of the block near the funeral service on Thursday. It was a little more awkward for the Gangs Squad detectives who had to supervise his body

‘Brother, there’s 30 of us (and) there’s two of you… show some respect’ one of the men said as Raptor 13 pushes the surging group out of his face.
‘I don’t care, you’re going to be searched, stand against the fence all of you… you’re all being searched for firearms and drugs,’ he responded.
And just hours after her husband’s body was covered with earth at Rookwood cemetery, a furious Ms Gonzalez fired up at trolls online.
The bereaved widow was furious after a woman claimed Hawi’s children were suffering because of their dad had been ‘involved in things that cost him his life’.
‘Before you speak you should have some facts!’ she fumed. ‘My husband did not do this to his children!
‘If you only knew the truth, you would hide in a cave from embarrassment from what you have just written.
‘My husband left that life a long time ago! How dare you write something like that?
‘What you have done is worse to my kids – planting this seed in their head is not nice of you.’
Police are still hunting for the man’s killers.
Hawi’s casket was covered with an elaborate flower display. His body was removed from its coffin prior to burial
