“Before we started recording, he whispered a funny line for me to say. He always did those things. He was funny and kind,” she recalled in his post.

Perry’s family has also spoken about their grieving process. Keith Morrison, The actor’s stepfather since 1981, did not hide the pain in an interview on the “Making Space” podcast with Hoda Kotb, and pointed out that the loss is something that will always be present. “It’s something that doesn’t go away. He is with you every day.”

The incident mainly affected Matthew’s mother, Morrison said. “Toward the end of his life, they were closer than I had seen them in decades”, he recounted. “He was happy and said so. He hasn’t said it in a long time, so it’s a source of comfort. But also, he didn’t have the third act from him, and that’s not fair.”

Matthew Perry spent several years of his life battling addiction. Before his death, the actor had spent at least 19 months clean — according to the autopsy report — but it was also indicated that he was trying ketamine infusion therapy to treat depression and anxiety. After his death, his mother and stepfather established a support foundation for people fighting substance dependence.
