It was the show Friends that everyone fell in love with, following the lives of 6 friends who lived in New York City. The show became so popular in everyone’s household that they stars recently had a reunion together to talk about their memories.

Matthew Perry spoke about the difficulties he faced, including feeling stressed or upset if the crowd didn’t laugh at his jokes or performance. Although externally the show was and still is a comfort for millions of people, for the stars who played the characters, there was a pressure they felt that no one else could understand.

Now, a few weeks after Perry’s death and the funeral, Matt LeBlanc broke his silence on Instagram and posted this:

His caption said

It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favorite times of my life.
It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend. I will always smile when I think of you and I’ll never forget you. Never.
Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love.
And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me.’

An emotional message for his friend with an added bit of humour. The group had a close relationship built from love, trust, closeness, and comedy. It was the perfect short message, that was intimate and direct to Matthew Perry.
