Longoria praised Huffman specifically for volunteering with her Latino charities.

"I can't tell you how many times she was the only one who would physically show up and help me with kids with cancer, or children with special needs," she wrote.

"The most special part is that my charities were always for children of the Latino community. I did the work because I am Latino, but Felicity didn't have to, she wanted to. There were so many times Felicity was the only white woman in the room helping me improve the lives of brown faces and families. I will never forget that."
