Two weeks after the untimely death of Matthew Perry, former Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston paid tribute to her friend and colleague, who passed away unexpectedly on 28 October at his residence in California.
The 54-year-old Aniston posted a message on her Instagram to her more than 44 million followers with a heartfelt message to her former co-star on the hit television show.
“Oh boy this one has cut deep... Having to say goodbye to our Matty has been an insane wave of emotions that I’ve never experienced before. We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Loss of life or loss of love. Being able to really SIT in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply.”
“I talk to you every day”
Throughout the farewell, Aniston remembers old conversations and text messages with Matt and reveals that she has acquired the habit of talking to him “every day.”
“In the last couple weeks, I’ve been pouring over our texts to one another. Laughing and crying then laughing again. I’ll keep them forever and ever. I found one text that he sent me out of nowhere one day. It says it all”, concludes the actress.
