"He is Seattle’s son," the singer's widow said, "and we will be bringing him home and honoring him.... with all of you, your love and support.”
Chris Cornell passed away almost three months ago, but his memory lives on in his family. To commemorate his legacy, widow Vicky Cornell is planning a statue of her late husband to be placed somewhere in Seattle, according to an interview with the Seattle Times.
Cornell said she has already contacted sculptor Wayne Toth, the artist behind Johnny Ramone?'s statue at his Hollywood Forever grave in Los Angeles, and that the statue should take seven months to create.
"He has already given me a design and the children and I love it," Cornell said, adding that she and a family friend, Seattle attorney Mark Johnson, would welcome fan input as they work with the city to find a suitable location. "He is Seattle’s son,” she said, “and we will be bringing him home and honoring him, I hope, with all of you, your love and support.”
