Jennifer Aniston on Matthew Perry: "Rest little brother, you always made my day"

Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry

The Greek-American actress posted on Wednesday on her personal Instagram account to honour the memory of her friend and "Friends" co-star, Matthew Perry, who passed away at the age of 54 after drowning at his home in Los Angeles on October 28.

After the posts of Courteney Cox and Matt Le Blanc, Jennifer Aniston also took to Instagram to express her feelings about the great loss.

Initially, she wrote: "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. He was such a part of our DNA. We were always the 6 of us. This was a chosen family that forever changed the course of who we were and what our path was going to be."

The actress continued: "For Matty, he KNEW he loved to make people laugh. As he said himself, if he didn't hear the ‘laugh’ he thought he was going to die. His life literally depended on it. And boy did he succeed in doing just that. He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard. In the last couple weeks, I’ve been poring 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."

Aniston concluded: "Matty, I love you so much and I know you are now completely at peace and out of any pain. I talk to you every day… sometimes I can almost hear you saying “could you BE any crazier?”

Rest little brother.
You always made my day…"

Matt LeBlanc Pens Heartbreaking Tribute to Matthew Perry: 'You're Finally Free'

Matt LeBlanc is honoring his on-screen roommate and real-life friend Matthew Perry after the actor's sudden death at age 54 on Oct. 28.

The actors starred as best friends Joey Tribbiani and Chandler Bing on Friends, and two weeks later LeBlanc has shared an emotional yet touching tribute on Instagram featuring photos of the pair on the NBC sitcom’s set.

"Matthew. It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favorite times of my life," wrote LeBlanc, 56. "It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend."

"I will always smile when I think of you and I’ll never forget you. Never," he continued. "Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love."

In concluding the post, LeBlanc joked: "And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me."

LeBlanc and Perry were long regarded as one of television’s most beloved best friend duos, and when the cast reunited in 2021 to film HBO Max’s Friends: The Reunion special — and to chat to PEOPLE for an exclusive look at the reunion — they were their usual silly selves.

Reflecting on where they’d imagine their characters to be in 2021, nearly two decades after the hit sitcom came to a close, LeBlanc told PEOPLE Joey likely "would have opened a chain of sandwich shops," to which Perry added that his on-screen bestie would have subsequently "eaten all the sandwiches."

LeBlanc then added to his answer that it would be a "dinosaur-themed sandwich shop," building off his castmate’s joke. "Bronto-burger."

As for his own character’s fate, Perry said he believed Chandler "would be a wonderful father" and "a wonderful comedy writer."

Later, they joked again as Perry called the chemistry between the cast "magic," and LeBlanc deadpanned, "I would say awkward."

"It’s awkwardly magic," Perry added.
