Chester Bennington’s widow has announced her engagement, two years after the singer’s death.
Talinda Ann Bennington shared the news with fans on social media Friday, saying, “you can find love after tragedy.”
Speaking from her heart, Talinda wrote, “Dear #Family, I am overjoyed to announce my engagement to my angel on earth, Michael F.”
She added, “a death of a soulmate does not mean the death of you,” and said that Chester’s Linkin Park bandmates are welcoming him with “open arms.”
Talinda assures fans that although she’s moving on in her love life, she’s not giving up on spreading Chester’s message.
“I will continue to honor Chester and continue my life’s mission to make his passing not in vein,” she wrote.
Continuing, she directed her announcement to suicide loss survivors with the message, “you CAN be happy again. You CAN have space in your heart for grief, joy, happiness, sadness, and love.”
Chester’s widow continued, “Thank you for ALL of your continued love and support.”
The Linkin Park singer committed suicide by hanging July 2017 and was later discovered by the housekeeper.
His family was away on vacation in Arizona at the time. Chester was 41 years old.
As The Blast reported, the Linkin Park frontman left Talinda over $8 million in music royalties and cash when he died.
The late singer and Talinda married in 2005 and shared three kids together — son Tyler, 13, and twins Lilly and Lila, 7.
Chester was also a father to three other children from previous relationships.
