In the wake of his tragic death, Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell’s wife has written a heartbreaking letter to the singer. Last week, the music industry was shocked by Cornell’s sudden passing. His death, which occurred just after a Soundgarden show in Detroit, was quickly ruled a suicide by authorities. Cornell, who was one of the faces of the ’90s grunge movement, was mourned by fans and celebrities alike, and was even honored at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards by Imagine Dragons’s Dan Reynolds.

Just a day after he died, Cornell’s wife Vicky, released a statement regarding the speculation around the circumstances that caused Cornell’s death. She revealed that Cornell was taking an antidepressant and feared he had taken one too many, leading to his death.

Now, a week later, Vicky has written a moving letter to her late husband for Billboard

Cornell and Vicky had been married for 13 years and had two children together, a daughter Toni and a son Christopher. Cornell also has a daughter, Lillian, from his first marriage. In the letter, Vicky recounts their lives together and writes that she hopes the singer is at peace. She ends the letter calling Cornell her soulmate.

Vicky’s letter is so moving. We’re so brokenhearted for her and the rest of Chris’s family. We hope they find their answers in time.
