A lot of people have been paying their respects and writing lovely tributes for Luke Perry who passed away on Monday, March 6, and now one of the closest people to the actor, his daughter Sophie Perry, has spoken out about the tragic death of her father.

On Tuesday, March 7, the 18-year-old and the youngest of Luke’s two kids, took to Instagram to share quite the message about her dad, saying she’s “grateful for all the love” she’s received. “A lot has happened in this past week for me,” Sophie captioned a photo of herself and her father together. “Everything is happening so fast. I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family. And in the past 24 hours, I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support.”

“I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I,” the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum’s daughter continued. “I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye. So bear with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly.”

The actor also leaves behind his fiancée, Wendy Madison Bauer, and a 21-year-old son named Jack Perry, a professional wrestler who most recently dropped out of a match due to his father’s sudden passing.

The Riverdale star died at the age of 52 after suffering a massive stroke. Plenty of his fellow actors shared their condolences, including his 90210 costar, Ian Ziering. “Dearest Luke, I will forever bask in the loving memories we’ve shared over the last thirty years,” the 54-year-old said on Twitter. “May your journey forward be enriched by the magnificent souls who have passed before you, just like you have done here, for those you leave behind.”

Our thoughts are with Luke and his family during this tough time.
