Brian Austin Green is mourning the death of his former Beverly Hills, 90210 costar and friend Luke Perry after he died at age 52 following a massive stroke.

“Luke was a special guy. I’m still mourning over it, so there’s a part of me that’s kind of shocked that I’m speaking about Luke this way,” Green said recently on his podcast. “We all knew that at some point we’d have to deal with losing cast members and friends, but not this soon. Not at 52. Not in such an abrupt way… Luke was one of those people nobody had a bad story about. He was just a great guy. And he was Luke no matter where you saw him, no matter when you saw him, no matter what he was going through. He was a rock.”

“I texted him after he passed, knowing obviously that he can’t text me back but on some level, hoping that he would text me back, or that he was out there somewhere,” Green revealed. “And I know he is. I know he’s looking down and I know he’s smiling.”

Perry died on March 4 in Burbank, California, five days after he suffered a massive stroke at his home in Sherman Oaks.

Bethenny Frankel has been using a similar coping mechanism following the death of her on-again/off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields, admitting on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of New York City that after her daughter Bryn asked if “Dennis still had a phone,” she decided to let her “text” him. Bethenny admitted she wrote him a letter over text herself, and felt strangely comforted.

Grief counselor Jill Cohen explained to Personal Space why that is. She said that “this phenomenon of texting loved ones after they have died is a real one.”
