Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer share touching tributes to Matthew Perry

“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.”

The Morning Show star, 54, called Perry 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.”

Her post also included a text message exchange between the pair, where Perry told her “Making you laugh just made my day,” as well as an emotional clip from the sitcom where their characters, Rachel Green and Chandler Bing, share a heartfelt goodbye.

“Matty, thank you for ten incredible years of laughter and creativity,” he began.

“I will never forget your impeccable comic timing and delivery. You could take a straight line of dialogue and bend it to your will, resulting in something so entirely original and unexpectedly funny it still astonishes.

“And you had heart. Which you were generous with, and shared with us, so we could create a family out of six strangers.

Schwimmer also shared a photo from Season 5 of Friends, where the duo are dressed up in ’80s-style suits from one of the show’s famed throwback scenes.
