Chester Bennington tributes have been pouring in to mark the second anniversary of his death, and the latest comes from his mother, Susan Eubanks. The proud mom revealed an intimate image she holds very dear to her: a photo of the last kiss she ever received from him. Bennington can be seen in a black hat and sunglasses planting a kiss on his mom.
