Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington’s daughter says her daddy will forever be touring in her heart.
Talinda, Chester’s widow, shared a heartbreaking tweet on Saturday quoting the couple’s 6-year-old daughter weeks after her father committed suicide.
“Lily asked me this morning… ‘IS DADDY ON TOUR IN OUR HEARTS?’….” Talinda wrote.
“Yes, my sweet baby he is.”

Lily, 6, is a twin to Chester and Talinda’s other daughter, Lila. The couple also shared son Tyler, 11. Chester left behind three other children from previous relationships.
The rocker took his own life on July 20 — on what would have been his dear friend Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday.
Cornell committed suicide months prior, in May 2017.
One week after Chester’s death, Talinda shared a statement calling her a life a “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,” she said.
“My babies are so young to have lost their daddy. And I know that all of you will help keep his memory alive.”
It seems fans have abided by her wish. On Friday, she shared on Twitter that someone had paid her lunch bill because they were such huge fans of her late husband.
“Thank you to the mystery person who just bought my lunch,” she wrote. “I went to pay & was told someone who loved my husband got my bill. #kindness.”
