Chester Bennington's daughter makes sweet comment

Bennington, the frontman of Linkin Park, took his own life on July 20, leaving behind a grieving family, including six-year-old twins Lily and Lila and their son, 11-year-old Tyler. His death has obviously been heartbreakingly hard on the family.

However, when Lily recently asked her mother a question, Talinda, his wife of 12 years, couldn’t help but share the sweet message on Twitter.

She said Lily wanted to know if her father was on tour in their hearts. Talinda responded to her “sweet baby” to say that yes, he is.

‘Sick Shakespearean tragedy’

Talinda made a statement one week after her husband’s death to say Chester was now “pain-free” but that her life had become a “sick Shakespearean tragedy.” She asked how she could pick up her “shattered soul.” She then asked how she could move on but added that the only answer she knows is to raise her and Chester’s children with all the love she has left. Talinda said her babies were too young to have lost their father, asking everyone to help keep his memory alive.

It looks like fans have taken her request to heart.

As reported by the New York Daily News, on Friday Talinda headed back to Twitter to share the story of how she went to pay for her lunch, only to find someone who was a huge fan of her late husband had already paid it for her. She went on to thank the mystery fan who paid.

Chris Cornell’s daughter pays tribute to her father and Chester Bennington

Bennington took his life on the day that would have been his best friend #Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday – however, Cornell himself committed suicide during May 2017. For Cornell’s family, the hurt is also still raw.

As recently reported by Radio.com, Linkin Park was scheduled to play on Good Morning America on August 4, but Bennington’s death had made that impossible.

However, Toni Cornell, the 12-year-old daughter of the late Cornell, went up on stage with Ryan Tedder of One Republic, where they sang the Leonard Cohen classic song “Hallelujah” as a heartbreaking and touching tribute to both her own father and Bennington. Toni said it was an honor to perform the song for Cornell and Bennington, adding that Bennington had sung that same moving song at her father’s funeral.
