(WJW) – Actors Matt LeBlanc and Courteney Cox have spoken out and released personal tributes to their “Friends” co-star Matthew Perry on Instagram.

Perry, best known for his portrayal of Chandler Bing on the popular television sitcom for 10 seasons, was found dead in his hot tub on Oct. 28. He was 54.

LeBlanc was the first to make an individual statement after the Friends cast released a joint statement on Oct. 30.

“It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favorite times of my life,” LeBlanc said in the Instagram caption. “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.”

The Instagram post features a series of photos of LeBlanc and Perry’s time together on the beloved sitcom.

“Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love,” the caption continued.

Of course, LeBlanc ended the touching tribute with a joke saying, “And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me.”

Cox made an Instagram post the same day saying, “I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day. When you work with someone as closely as I did with Matthew, there are thousands of moments I wish I could share. For now, here’s one of my favorites.”

Cox posted a clip of the show, the first moment Friends fans saw a budding relationship between characters Monica and Chandler, as well as the bloopers to go along with the actual scene.

“To give a little backstory, Chandler and Monica were supposed to have a one-night fling in London. But because of the audience’s reaction, it became the beginning of their love story.
In this scene, before we started rolling, he whispered a funny line for me to say.
He often did things like that. He was funny and he was kind. 🤍🕊️,” Cox said.
