This past Thursday marked the one year anniversary of Chester Bennington‘s death. To pay tribute to the musician, his Linkin Park bandmates took to social media to share kind words and memories of the beloved frontman.

“To our brother Chester, it has been a year since your passing — a surreal rotation of grief, heartbreak, refusal, and recognition,” the band wrote on Twitter. “And yet it still feels like you are close by, surrounding us with your memory and your light. Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts — our jokes, our joy, and our tenderness.”

The band’s bassist, Dave “Phoenix” Farrell, also shared a tribute on his Instagram account. “I still struggle to try and eloquently express what you mean to your family, your friends, your fans… and to me,” he wrote. “There is so much that I feel, and that I could say, and that I would want to say, and that I don’t know how to say… but one thing I know for certain, is that you are loved, and you are missed.”

Bennington committed suicide on July 20, 2017, the same day as close friend Chris Cornell’s birthday. Cornell had also committed suicide just two months prior. Take a look at the tributes below.
