Chris Cornell’s mother-in-law Toni Karayiannis discussed why ‘self-promotion has no place’ when a person has died in a new Instagram comment.
“Evil and greed ,self promotion on a dead person has no place! His wife kids is who counts ,as in all families!! Uncles cousins aunts they are there to support u and walk away in peace! If possible! There is nothing else to do except go home and leave the family to grieve in peace! As my family did!
Flew ,stayed and left went home ! Keep in touch as always to ask if we need anything and that’s it! No cries on demand no videos to explore! They have pride!Greeks we have pride compassion and no theatrics! Only his wife and his 3 kids can do! No other!”
Chris Cornell’s mother-in-law Toni Karayiannis wrote a new tribute post on Instagram:
“If I can bring back time! When u left and kiss me goodbye as always, i asked u! Should I come w you maybe? U said u will hate it there is not what u like to be, plus I will see u Monday in Denver! Well Monday never came time stop since that awful night! Nothing is the same!
