Matthew Perry, best known for playing Chandler Bing on “Friends,” was honored at a private funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles. His “Friends” co-stars, among other loved ones, gathered to grieve.
Perry died on Oct. 28 at the age of 54, and his death deeply affected his “Friends” co-stars. “We are all completely devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just castmates. We are a family,” they expressed in a heartfelt statement. They promised to talk more about Perry’s legacy when they are ready, adding: “For now, our thoughts and love are with Matty’s family.”
Perry’s commitment to helping others struggle with addiction ran deep. In a previous interview, he revealed: “I can say yes and follow up and do it… when I die, I don’t want friends to be the first thing that’s mentioned – I want that to be the first thing that be mentioned. »
True to his wishes, the Matthew Perry Foundation was established to support those struggling with addiction, reflecting his dedication. “The Matthew Perry Foundation is the fulfillment of Matthew’s enduring commitment to helping others struggling with the disease of addiction,” a statement from the organization confirmed.
