“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,” the “Morning Show” star began her lengthy Instagram caption
“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.”
Aniston, 54, called Perry and their “Friends” castmates her “chosen family” who “forever changed the course” of her life.
“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,” she shared.
“His life literally depended on it. And boy did he succeed in doing just that. He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard.”
Aniston ended her post by opening up about revisiting text messages she and Matty sent each other, telling her followers that she’s been “laughing and crying and then laughing again.”
“Matty, I love you so much and I know you are now completely at peace and out of any pain,” she concluded.
“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…”
