Courtney Love is remembering her "angel," Kurt Cobain.

The Hole frontwoman took a moment on Tuesday to pay tribute to her late husband on what would have been their 28-year wedding anniversary. The pair tied the knot in 1992 and were married until the Nirvana singer died by suicide on April 5, 1994. The rockers share a daughter, 27-year-old Frances Bean Cobain.

"28 years ago, we got married, in Honolulu, on Waikiki beach 🏝 tonight spoke to sponsor, I .. Lit some candles 🕯 chanted, diamoku, Walked my dog 🐕. Went to sushi with my best friend, the closest I have to another one," Love wrote alongside a photo of the two on their wedding day. "28 years ago I recall feeling, deeply, delighted, dizzy, so in love, and knowing how lucky I was."

"This man was an angel. i thank him for looking out for me , many parts of the the last 28 years have been torturous chaotic and uphill, and in public?" she continued. "That is the darkest sh*t imaginable, it almost tapped my resilience , almost . but between Kurt’s strange amazing divinity, and the honor of a few true friends, the gift of desperation and sobriety. Of a Higher power and of love, and of empathy, I’m here now. It’ll be ok, f**k, I see him on the shore. Rocking in the free world. My husband."

And on Cobain's birthday, Feb. 20, Love posted a black-and-white photo of him on her page.

Shortly before his death, the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" singer had recently checked out of a rehabilitation facility. Love had said he had been suicidal. She had previously opened up about their love during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, where the documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck was screened.

“We were best friends. I’ve had great boyfriends since, but I’ll never have another friend like that. It’s that punch drunk love, where you meet your soulmate and you’re 25," she expressed. "There are other kinds of love, more mature love. But this was a soulmate thing."
