Actor Josh Gad shared his latest lyrics with Boseman on his Twitter account.
“After a year, not a day goes by that it doesn’t hurt. But in the dark it always reminds us of the light,” wrote Gad.
“I often go back to this, my last text from him, and smile because I know that he was always looking for beauty, even if it could have been so much easier to give in to the harsh realities of life. He was an angel on this planet and is now a saint on high. Love you and miss you more than ever … forever. “
Kerry Washington called Boseman a “king” and insisted that he was very much missed.
“A year without Chadwick Boseman,” wrote Washington. “Thank you for taking care of us. We miss you King.”
