Luke Perry’s Daughter Speaks Out, One Day After His Death
Sophie Perry, Luke Perry’s daughter, has spoken about her father’s death saying nobody is “given a lesson” on handling such a loss.
“A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast,” she wrote on Instagram. “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.”
In September, Sophie, who lived in Dowagiac, Michigan, posted a video describing her charity work for nonprofit One World Center, and asked for fundraising help for her trip to Africa.
Following her dad’s death, Sophie also thanked his fans who have shown her family love:
“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,” she wrote. “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 bare with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly.”
Luke Perry passed away at the age of 52 after suffering a massive stroke last week. Our hearts go out to his family during this time.
