Lupita Nyong’o, Viola Davis & More Share Messages of Love For Chadwick Boseman On the First Anniversary of His Passing

It’s been one year since the world lost Chadwick Boseman and his friends, co-stars and colleagues are remembering his joy, love and positivity.

The Black Panther star passed away on August 28, 2020 after a four-year battle with colon cancer – a diagnosis he never publicly shared.

“Not a day goes by one year later, where it doesn’t still hurt,” Josh captioned the screenshot.

“But in the darkness, he always reminds us of the light. I often go back to this. my final text from him, and smile, knowing he always sought the beauty even when 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.”

Chadwick was just 43 when he passed away.
