Matt LeBlanc has shared a touching tribute to his longtime friend and Friends co-star Matthew Perry following Perry's tragic death last month.

LeBlanc took to his Instagram on Tuesday (November 14) to pen an emotional letter to Perry, sharing photos from the hit show and reflecting on what he called some of the best times of his life.

"It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye," he wrote, addressing Perry. "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 call you my friend. I will always smiles when I think of you and I'll never forget you. Never."

Most of the photos LeBlanc shared of the pair were stills from the show where he and Perry starred as roommates and best friends Joey Tribbiani and Chandler Bing, including a couple pics of the pair hugging each other. The final photo he included in the post was a group hug with the entire main cast, including Jennifer Anniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer.

LeBlanc concluded his heartfelt message with a sweet send-off, writing, "Spread your wings and fly brother you're finally free. Much love." He also added an inside joke between the pair, "And I guess you're keeping the 20 bucks you owe me."

Perry died unexpectedly at his home on October 28 at just 54 years old. He was reportedly found unresponsive in his jacuzzi by his assistant. Initial autopsy results were considered inconclusive and his cause of death was "deferred" amid further investigation and results of a toxicology report.

His Friends co-stars, who were also spotted attending his funeral earlier this month, issued a joint statement on October 30 about the loss of their longtime friend.

"We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family. There is so much to say, but right now we're going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss," the statement reads. "In time we will say more, as and when we are able. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty's family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world.
