Our dearest Family,
This is the hardest thing to write to you. Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing.
I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you.
He was taken to the emergency room and at 3 am today his heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear.
He fought the good fight. You stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone.
In utterly sad news, Deftones bassist Chi Ling Dai Cheng (†42) passed away on Saturday.
Being one of the beloved founding members of one of my favorite bands, a car accident in November 2008 left him in a coma for almost two years, until he began showing signs of improvement in Spring 2010.
My deepest condolences to Chi's family, the band, and all those who stood near to him. Rest in peace, Chi!
