So tragic. Jessica Seinfeld paid an emotional and touching tribute to her late friend Garry Shandling, revealing she and husband Jerry Seinfeld had spend the entire day in tears and laughter.
Shandling, who died of a heart attack at the age of 66 on Thursday, March 24, had made a recent appearance on Jerry's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, in which he revealed a diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism.
And as Jessica shared via Instagram later that day (in a post that was regrammed by her husband), she and husband Jerry spend the hours after they learned of their friend's death reminiscing about the filming of that episode, which turned out to be the last day Jerry and Shandling ever spent together.
We have been crying/laughing/crying through Jerry's last day with Garry all afternoon. There is no better tribute and no better reminder of what a beautiful, gentle, BRILLIANT sweet angel Garry Shandling was. http://comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com/garry-shandling-its-great-that-garry-shandling-is-still-alive
"We have been crying/laughing/crying through Jerry's last day with Garry all afternoon," Jessica captioned a photo of her husband and Shandling laughing together from the episode.
"There is no better tribute and no better reminder of what a beautiful, gentle, BRILLIANT sweet angel Garry Shandling was," she continued, adding a link to the video.
Parts of the clip, ironically titled “It’s Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive,” are particularly poignant in light of the comedian's sudden and unexpected death.
During the car conversation, the two comics discussed mortality, the shocking death of the late Robin Williams and passing away in your sixties.
“You have to die in your sixties for them to say he was young,” Seinfeld quipped of Williams, who was 63 when he died in 2014.
