Toni Cornell, the daughter of the late Chris Cornell, has shared home video footage to celebrate what would’ve been her father’s 58th birthday.

The clip, which was posted to Toni’s Instagram, shows the Soundgarden frontman singing Eminem‘s “Not Afraid” and “Love the Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna along with Toni and her younger brother, Christopher.

In a caption accompanying the video, Toni and Christopher write a message to their father, reading, “You were always playing music for us, singing with us, dancing with us.”

“Losing you was one of the hardest things we had to go through,” the Cornell children write. “They say it gets easier with time, but as the days and years go by, and since we last saw you, we are missing you even more.”

They add, “Happy Birthday to the greatest dad and most incredible human whose life continues to leave an incredible mark on everyone he touches.”

Chris Cornell died by suicide on May 18, 2017 at age 52. Eerily, Linkin Park‘s Chester Bennington, who had become friends with Cornell, also died by suicide on July 20, 2017, which would’ve been Chris’ 53rd birthday.
