Widow of Chris Cornell, Vicky, has announced a vigil at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on May 18th to mark the one-year anniversary of her husband’s passing.
“All of us who loved Chris know how special he was and how much he gave to all of us. Your love for him, your sympathy and support for us has carried us through these 12 months. We welcome all to join us in remembrance. (Swipe right for info) As we know there are millions of fans and not everyone can physically be there, we would be honored if you share posts and videos of how Chris’ music has touched you. We can feel your love no matter how far. Light a candle, say a prayer, speak his name….. #chriscornellforever #noonesingslikeyouanymore #chriscornell.”
“It is with great emotion I reach out to all of you as the one year anniversary of my husband’s passing approaches. Chris was loved, so much, by so many. The children and I are so grateful to you all for being by our sides throughout all of this.
Your love has created a close-knit community; more like a family; to grieve with, to provide support, and to help us heal. We could not have gotten through these last twelve months without you. We will be holding a vigil in Chris’ memory at Hollywood Forever Cemetery on May 18th, beginning promptly at 7PM. We want to open this up to you, our extended family, and invite you to join us on this day of prayer and remembrance to pay our respects together.
Loud Love, Vicky Cornell.”
