Kurt Cobain is gone but not forgotten.

On what would have been the Nirvana frontman’s 51st birthday, his widow, Courtney Love, 54, posted an emotional tribute on Instagram to remind him that he’s missed. In the black-and white shot, Cobain has his arm around the songstress and is gazing at her.

Cobain committed suicide in 1994, leaving behind Love and their young daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, who is now 25.

Frances Bean hasn’t posted any tributes of her own today, but she seems to be in a good space. The model and artist — who was largely raised by her grandmother Wendy Cobain but reconciled with her mom in recent years — shared via social media earlier this month that she is two years sober. In November, she was officially divorced from Isaiah Silva, though they are still battling it out over their division of assets (and Kurt’s guitar from Nirvana’s famed MTV Unplugged performance). She’s currently in a relationship with Matthew Cook, who’s a member of the band the Ceremonies.

Love never remarried after Cobain’s death, but she dated Edward Norton and has been linked to others, including Steve Coogan, Billy Corgan, and director Nicholas Jarecki.
