“You gave me the world w/your love &children. For that, I can never repay you.

“I pray you are dancing in Heaven.

“The kids &I are privately celebrating you today by doing your fav family activities.”

Linkin Park also paid tribute to the late singer by sharing a picture of him on social media, with the words “Happy Birthday Chester.”

Bandmate Mike Shinoda tweeted: “Happy Birthday Chester.

“Miss you so much, buddy.”

“What are you going to do to #MakeChesterProud today, Linkin Park fans?” he added.

Bennington was found dead at his Los Angeles home on July 20 2017. A coroner later ruled he had taken his own life.
