Vicky Cornell wrote an open letter to her late husband, Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, which was published by Billboard on Wednesday, bearing her soul about the loss.

Cornell's death last week in a Detroit hotel room was ruled a suicide by hanging, the HuffPost reported, adding that he had performed a sold-out show with his band before he killed himself.

Toxicology reports are still pending, where family members hope to learn if Cornell's anti-anxiety medication played a role in the actions, the HuffPost said.

"You had always said I saved you, that you wouldn't be alive if it were not for me," Vicky Cornell wrote in her Billboard open letter. "My heart gleamed to see you happy, living and motivated. Excited for life. Doing everything you could to give back. We had the time of our lives in the last decade and 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."

Chris Cornell, 52, cofounded Soundgarden, one of the top-selling bands in the Seattle grunge rock revolution of the 1990s, according to Biography.com. Cornell also found success as a solo artist and the band Audioslave, stated the website.

Chris and Vicky Cornell had three children, ages 16, 12 and 11, the HuffPost noted.

"I'm broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies," Vicky Cornell continued. "I will think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you. You were right when you said we are soulmates. 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."

In a 2014 interview with Rolling Stone, Cornell talked about his emotional state while working on Soundgarden's biggest hit album "Superunknown" in 1994.

"… I think that I always struggled with depression and isolation, so those could come out," Cornell said in the interview. "I think that the mood of Seattle to me, and the way that I always interpreted that mood was something that was always a little bit introspective and dark. And I wouldn't say 'depressing,' but introspective in a way that could be moodier and darker."
