    This is so tragic. I feel like I just lost a best friend after watching Friends repeatedly. Rest in Peace, Matthew.

    My sister loved Friends so much, that she’d actually become annoyed if she missed clapping with the opening theme. This news brought her, and myself to tears. Matthew was such a likeable guy, but his struggles with alcohol hindered his ability to live a long life. RIP Matthew, thank you for all the laughs that you brought us, you’ll be forever loved and missed. *_We love you Chandler Bing_* ❤😭

    Such devastating news. His book was truly inspiring but a very heartbreaking read. He grappled with some relentlessly brutal demons – from the crippling depression and anxiety that lead him into one addiction after the other. He soldiered on as best as he could, and he brought so much laughter and light to us all. His memory will live on forever through the iconic pieces he left behind – and I just hope and pray that he’s finally at peace now. RIP Matthew Perry – You will never be forgotten. #ripChandlerBing

      What happened to him? What was the main cause of his addiction?

    • Darcy A. says:

      “Finally at peace now? “Not if he never trusted the gospel of Christ and got saved. He had to trust Christ died for our sins, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (I Corinthians 15:1-4 KJB). You believe that and you go to heaven when you die. If you don’t believe/trust it, you pay for your own sins in the lake of fire for all eternity. I don’t wish that on anyone.

      I don’t think you can think he died happy & at peace when he was fighting addictions & died in a hot tub 😏

    • Caroline Matusevich says:

      @WeLsHMeLlY He’s been sober f for years. Conspiracy theory much?

    • TripWire says:

      ​@Melichka WillowThere is always that one negative person trying to turn a nice comment into something to reply in a sarcastic way when all this writer wanted was to wish him peace. In case you can’t read between the lines, that’s you. Here. I’ll give it a shot…. “Rest in peace, Matthew Perry. Despite your battles in life, you have changed many lives for the better just with your struggles alone. I hope that you are now in a place with better people and a clearer mind.”

    Many of us knew of his addiction issues over the years, but after reading his book I realized how tortured he was by his addiction. He just couldn’t get a handle on it. Even after he finally quit, he was still tortured by his life. He is at peace now, probably for the first time in life. RIP Matthew Perry.
