I didn’t spend a lot of time with my papa in my lifetime, mostly because of these habits that he had. Although he had these habits, I still loved him, I just didn’t express it as much I had hoped to. When I heard that he had passed away, I instantly felt guilt about the way that I treated him, because of the bad habits that he had. I felt instant regret about this, and knew that I would never be able to tell him “I love you” one last time.

He seemed to be depressed in interviews that he had before he had committed suicide All of the fans of Nirvana were in heartache when they hear the news of Kurt Cobain 's death. Feeling guilt, because they wanted to make his life the best. Feeling their love for him even more, knowing that the band will never make anything new. Also happiness to know that they supported him, and that they were there when he was happy.
