Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow all paid tribute to her Friends co-star Matthew Perry nearly three weeks after his sudden death.

Aniston shared a throwback photo of Perry making her laugh, along with a text he had shared with the actress. Aniston, who starred as Rachel in the beloved series, also included a clip from the show.

“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,” Aniston wrote Wednesday on Instagram. “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 continued, “In the last couple weeks, I’ve been pouring over our texts to one another. Laughing and crying then laughing again. I’ll keep them forever and ever. I found one text that he sent me out of nowhere one day. It says it all.”

David Schwimmer, who starred as Ross in the '90s sitcom, also shared his gratitude for Perry.

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

Lisa Kudrow honored Perry with memories from their time together on Friends.

“Shot the pilot, Friends Like Us, got picked up then immediately, we were at the NBC Upfronts,” she wrote on Instagram.

Kudrow shared a framed throwback photo with Perry. The young actors smiled in the snap from the '90s when they began working on the beloved sitcom.

“Then… You suggested we play poker AND made it so much fun while we initially bonded. Thank you for that.”

“Thank you for making me laugh so hard at something you said, that my muscles ached, and tears poured down my face EVERY DAY. Thank you for your open heart in a six way relationship that required compromise. And a lot of ‘talking.'”

She added, “Thank you for showing up at work when you weren’t well and then, being completely brilliant.”

“Thank you for the best 10 years a person gets to have. Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for all I learned about GRACE and LOVE through knowing you.”

“Thank you for the time I got to have with you, Matthew.”
