Late Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots singer Chester Bennington’s widow Talinda Bennington announced her engagement to a man named Michael on Friday, two years after Chester died by suicide at their home.
Linkin Park singer/guitarist Mike Shinoda commented, “I’ve already congratulated you both in person, but congrats again, ha! All our love and support!”
Mike’s wife Anna Shinoda commented, “I am so very happy for you and Michael! I’ve watched you go from being paralyzed with grief, to honoring that grief by using it to change the way we view mental health, to honoring life and allowing yourself to love and be loved again.
When it comes to emotion, our hearts are wonderful organs indeed, expanding and allowing new love to exist in the same place as the deep ache of grief. I cannot wait to celebrate on your wedding day with you.”
Chris Cornell’s mother-in-law Toni Karayiannis commented, “Congratulations angel! You deserve all the happiness in the world! We proud of you for keeping Chester’s memory alive! And all the work that you do! You one powerful woman! My love and respect my angel! ❤️🎸”
Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder recently discussed Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell’s deaths with a big name. Talinda Bennington wrote on Saturday, “HERE IS THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION’S new MH campaign!! Let’s all take part and show them how powerful we all are together ❤️. Every 40 seconds someone loses their life to #suicide.
#WorldMentalHealthDay, on 10 October, is a day for us to unite in our efforts to improve the #mentalhealth of people around the 🌎🌍🌏. The theme selected for this year’s Day is suicide prevention. We will begin our efforts to raise awareness of the scale of suicide around the world and the role that each of us can play to help prevent it on 10 September, #WorldSuicidePreventionDay and continue throughout the month.
Everyone can take part in whichever way makes most sense.
Your activity may be private, initiating a conversation with someone you are worried about or sharing a message of hope with someone who is struggling; or it may be public, posting a video message for local or national authorities about action you would like them to take on this issue. Stay tuned and support the #40seconds campaign. For more information, check link in bio.” Chester Bennington’s mother revealed a touching final photo earlier this year.
