I’m finding it hard to grasp that he will no longer be around to give long hugs and share his wisdom and kindness with all of us.— Lili Reinhart (@lilireinhart) March 4, 2019
I’m thinking of his family. His children.
I pray for them to heal and find peace in this devastating loss.

The first time I met Luke Perry we talked about what kind of movie we wanted “Buffy” to be. I asked if he’d ever seen “Near Dark” and he gave me a look of HOW DARE YOU SIR and I knew we’d get along. Funny, committed, and always gracious. He shouldn’t be gone.— Joss Whedon (@joss) March 4, 2019
Joss Whedon, who wrote BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SPLAYER, the movie in which Perry acted, recalled: "The first time I met Luke Perry we talked about what kind of movie we wanted 'Buffy' to
be. I asked if he'd ever seen 'Near Dark' and he gave me a look of How dare you Sir and I knew we'd get along. Funny, committed, and always gracious. He shouldn't be gone."
My heart is broken ....There are so many special moments in life that we all take for granted ...like @madchenamick pulling out her phone and taking this sweet and silly ‘selfie’ of us… https://t.co/8IKyGMdWj8— Robin Givens (@Therocknrobn) March 4, 2019
