The holiday season can conjure many emotions. In Courtney Love's case, she looked back at one Christmas she shared with Kurt Cobain and daughter Frances Bean Cobain, offering a message to both family members in the process.

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love got to spend two Christmases (1992 and 1993) as a family with Frances before Kurt's suicide in 1994. Love's new letter to Kurt, though addressed to Frances at the very end, thanks the Nirvana frontman for giving her Frances, "the gift that makes life worth living."

Courtney posted on Instagram:

Frances Bean tweeted out a Christmas greeting of her own. Among those she sent love to include former My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way and his wife, Lyn-Z, who also plays bass for Mindless Self Indulgence. Courtney Love, however, is not mentioned:
