I februar kom beskjeden om at «Beverly Hills 90210»-stjernen Shannen Doherty (48) hadde fått kreft for andre gang.

Mens Doherty kjemper sin egen kamp mot kreften kom nyheten om at hennes nære venninne, Deborah Waknin Harwin har gått bort som følge av sykdommen.

– Jeg vil savne deg for alltid, skriver skuespilleren på Instagram om venninnen gjennom 28 år som døde av kreftsykdommen.

I innlegget skriver skuespilleren at hun møtte venninnen, Deborah for rundt 28 år siden og at de øyeblikkelig ble gode venner.

– Et vennskap som på 28 år har holdt ut, vokst og blitt verdsatt av oss begge. Hun lærte meg å spille backgammon. Hun introduserte meg for øyen St. Barths som startet jenteturene våre dit. Hun lærte meg at når hun kledde meg opp, så jeg bedre ut, skriver Doherty.

Around 28 years ago when I met Deborah, she made me squeeze into very tight red patent pants. It was an instant friendship. A friendship that in 28 years has endured, grown and been cherished by us both. She taught me to play backgammon. She introduced me to the island of ST. Barth which started our girl trips there. She taught me that when she dressed me, I looked better lol. We were together thru boyfriends and husbands. Divorces, tears and laughter. We danced on tables (and fell off them- inside joke) all around the world together. I was her maid of honor at her wedding to the love of her life Craig. We cried when she called to tell me she was pregnant with her extraordinary daughter Olivia. She spoke 5 plus languages fluently. We went to the same high school we discovered. We worked on shows together. We grew up…. together. She was a constant. Thru my cancer and I for her when she got diagnosed 4 years ago. She smiled, a lot. She radiated beauty, intelligence and goodness. She was and is wedged into my heart so deeply. We were more than best friends. We were sisters. Tied to each other by the universe, by our very essences that recognized each other instantly. Deb I hope you are dancing on tables again, having a tequila and shooting the shit with God. I will miss you forever, your advice, your laughter, your frankness. I will so miss you. I already do. I already feel it, this part of my heart missing. Deborah Waknin Harwin I love you.

Videre skriver Doherty at venninnen utstrålte skjønnhet, intelligens og godhet og at hun for alltid vill være i hjertet hennes. Hun beskriver vennskapet som mer enn bestevenner og forteller at de så på hverandre som søstre.

– Jeg vil savne deg for alltid, dine råd, din latter, din ærlighet. Det gjør jeg allerede. Jeg føler det allerede, en del av hjertet mitt mangler. Deborah Waknin Harwin, jeg elsker deg, avslutter hun.
