On Instagram, Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda penned a tragic letter to celebrate birthday of Chester Bennington, who passed away two years ago.

Mike posted an unseen photo of himself with Chester, and wrote:

“I didn’t really want to post today, but I also thought it would be weird not to post. I don’t want the day Chester passed to be marked as an “event.”

I’d rather celebrate his birthday, celebrate album anniversaries, celebrate the countless moments our wonderful LP family has had together. Today, just take care of yourself. ❤️✌🏽”
