The former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star Ian Ziering shared his condolences for actor Luke Perry, who died on March 4 after suffering a stroke.
Perry died in a Los Angeles area hospital surrounded by family and friends, including his ex-wife Minnie Sharp, his two sons, and her boyfriend Wendy Madison Bauer, said his press secretary Arnold Robinson.
"The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and they respectfully ask for privacy at this time of great grief. No further details will be released at this time," Robinson told Reuters.
Last week he was hospitalized after a stroke at his home in southern California.
The tributes came, even from Ziering, on Monday.
"Forever I will bask in the loving memories we have shared over the past thirty years. May your journey be enriched by the magnificent souls that preceded you, just like you did here, for those you left behind," wrote Ziering on social media.

Luke Perry was a great actor and truly unique. Watching it on 90210 was one of the reasons I wanted to move to Los Angeles. Thinking about his family and his friends inside and outside the set. Rest in peace.
