Chris Cornell’s Wife Vicky Writes Emotional Letter To Departed Singer
It has been a week since the world lost legendary Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell. The frontman for Audioslave and Temple of the Dog committed suicide in room #1136 of the MGM Grand hotel in Detroit last Thursday. The iconic 52-year-old singer’s widow, Vicky, released an emotional open letter to her late husband.
To My Sweet Christopher,
You were the best father, husband and son-in-law. Your patience, empathy and love always showed through.
You had always said I saved you, that you wouldn’t be alive if it were not for me. My heart gleamed to see you happy, living and motivated. Excited for life. Doing everything you could to give back. We had the time of our lives in the last decade and I’m sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night. I’m sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher. Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace.
I’m broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies. I will think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you. You were right when you said we are soulmates. It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.
I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will.
Always and forever,
Chris Cornell’s body was flown from Detroit to Los Angeles on Sunday and was reportedly cremated Tuesday in Hollywood.
The private funeral for Chris Cornell will be held on Friday at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
“After 3 p.m. local time, the public is welcome to visit the gravesite, after the private concludes,” Cornell’s attorney told Variety.
