The two costarred on the Disney Channel show Jessie together.
Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce passed away in his sleep on Saturday due to a seizure-related illness. He was 20 years old.
His Jessie costar Peyton List posted an open letter on Instagram expressing her sorrow over Boyce’s passing.
“Cameron… the boy whose contagious laugh I can still hear. The boy who left everyone feeling hopeful and full of love. He was younger than me, but taught me how to spread love and kindness more than anyone that has ever been in my life. He lifted everyone around him, and inspired/pushed me to be a better person than I ever would’ve been without his guidance, patience, and love.”
She continued, promising to “never stop talking about him,” ensuring that his legacy will continue long after his death.
“I can barely see my eyes anymore from crying so hard. Cameron, I love you with every ounce of me, and I thank you for the time I had with you, being in my life, and being my brother forever and always. There is a hole in my heart that will never heal left for you. I will never stop talking about you.”
She ended her post remembering Boyce as a “beautiful soul.”
“You are the most special person I’ve ever had the honor of encountering, Cameron Boyce. You left everyone, including me, better than when you found them,.Heaven has gained a beautiful soul. Wish I could hug you one last time Cam. My heart is broken. I’ve never hurt this bad.”
