In addition to the visual tributes, fans also shared an excerpt from an interview Matthew Perry gave on a podcast last year, where he expressed his wishes for how he would like to be remembered after his departure.

“When I’m gone, I know people will be talking about ‘Friends,’ and I’m grateful for that, grateful to have done solid work as an actor, as well as to have provided the opportunity for people to laugh at my internet battles.” , said Perry. “But in terms of my supposed achievements, it would be amazing if ‘Friends’ was listed right behind the things I’ve done to try to help others. I know that might be a distant hope, but it would be wonderful.”
