It has been two years since Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington, committed suicide.
On the anniversary of his death, his wife, Talinda Bennington, and mother, Susan Eubanks, are paying tribute to the rocker who was 41 at the time.
“The last kiss I ever got from my wonderful boy,” Eubanks wrote on Twitter with a picture of the two of them. “There are no words to explain how much I miss him! I want us to all celebrate his life today! Love you all! Please take care and celebrate Chester’s life today! He would want us to celebrate!”
Bennington posted a video on Saturday to remember her late husband where she said, “Today is going to be a really hard day for a lot of people, and that may be you, and I just want you to know that you’re loved, you matter, and the world means something with you in it. And today let’s make Chester proud, and take care of each other, because that’s what he would want us to do.”
Bennington co-founded the 320 Changes Direction initiative after Chester’s death as a resource for friends and family to find information on mental health and how to help loved ones suffering.
The women weren’t the only two to honour Chester. His bandmates Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, Rob Bourdon and Joe Hahn posted a group shot writing, “Remembering Chester today. Feel free to share your [favourite] moment of Chester / LP in the comments below.”
Some fan’s memories shared were, “His voice just touches you on a level that nobody can ever achieve.”
Another person added, “The intro at One More Light World Tour in Monza was awesome. I couldn’t believe I was there.”
