Heartbroken Vicky wrote a moving tribute to the Soundgarden frontman apologising for not being there when he died.
Chris hanged himself last week in his Detroit hotel room. His wife wrote: “I’m sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night.
“I’m sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher. Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace.
“It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.”
Chris, 52, was cremated in a private ceremony at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
A private funeral will be held at the same venue today.
