Talinda Bennington, wife of Chester Bennington released a statement today to the public on the loss of her incredible husband through the band's publicist. You can read the statement below: One week ago, I lost my soulmate and my children lost their hero-their Daddy. We had a fairytale life and now it has turned into some sick Shakespearean tragedy. How do I move on? How do I pick up my shattered soul? The only answer I know is to raise our babies with every ounce of love I have left. I want to let my community and the fans worldwide know that we feel your love. We feel your loss as well. My babies are so young to have lost their daddy. And I know that all of you will help keep his memory alive. He was a bright, loving soul with an angel's voice. And now he is pain free singing his songs in all of our hearts. May God Bless us all and help us turn to one another when we are in pain. Chester would've wanted us to do so. Rest In Peace, my love. Always, Mrs.Talinda Bennington To Talinda, Chester's children, the band and the family: Words cannot adequately express how sorry we are for your tragic loss. You are in our thoughts during this difficult time.
