The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

It's been just over two years since Chester Bennington took his own life, and while his widow Talinda has gone above and beyond to honor him and help raise awareness about mental health, she also has to look out for her own well-being. On Friday (September 6), she took to Instagram to let followers know that she is engaged.

“Dear #Family, I am overjoyed to announce my engagement to my angel on earth, Michael F.,” her announcement reads. “I am here to tell you that you can find love after tragedy. That a death of a soulmate does not mean the death of you. My family, friends, and my Linkin Park brothers welcome him to the family with open arms. I will continue to honor Chester and continue my life’s mission to make his passing not in vein.”

She ended the post with a note of encouragement to others who have lost a loved one to suicide. “To all Suicide Loss Survivors, you CAN be happy again. You CAN have space in your heart for grief, joy, happiness, sadness, and love,” she wrote. “Thank you for ALL of your continued love and support.”
