Jennifer Aniston is breaking her silence on the death of her "Friends" co-star, Matthew Perry, who was found unconscious in his hot tub last month.

Just moments ago, the actress shared a series of photos, including a screenshot of a conversation Perry and Aniston had prior to his death.

"Oh boy this one has cut deep...," Aniston began to write on social media. "Having to say goodbye to our Matty has been an insane wave of emotions that I’ve never experienced before. We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Loss of life or loss of love."

The 54-year-old actress arrived at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills neighborhood on November 3 for Perry’s memorial. She showed up first, with her security guards right by her side. Although she arrived first, she did wait for the rest of her ‘Friends’ cast — Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and David Schwimmer — to get there before making her way inside so they could go in together. Matt LeBlanc met up with them at a later time.

The "Friends" star then added, "For Matty, he KNEW he loved to make people laugh. As he said himself, if he didn't hear the ‘laugh’ he thought he was going to die. His life literally depended on it. And boy did he succeed in doing just that. He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard. 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."

She concluded by saying, "Matty, I love you so much and I know you are now completely at peace and out of any pain. I talk to you every day… sometimes I can almost hear you saying “could you BE any crazier?” Rest little brother. You always made my day…"
