ABC/Randy HolmesChris Cornell‘s family will be holding a vigil this Friday, May 18 to mark the one-year anniversary of the Soundgarden frontman’s death. The ceremony will take place at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, where Cornell is buried.

“We want to open this up to you, our extended family, and invite you to join us on this day of prayer and remembrance to pay our respects together,” Cornell’s widow Vicky Cornell writes. She also encourages fans who aren’t able to attend to share “posts and videos of how Chris’ music has touched you.”

“We can feel your love no matter how far,” she writes. “Light a candle, say a prayer, speak his name.”

Cornell died by suicide the early morning of May 18, 2017 following a Soundgarden show in Detroit the previous night. He was 52.
