The late actor Chadwick Boseman’s family and friends gathered together over the weekend to pay their respects.
This comes just less than 2 weeks after the actor succumbed to colon cancer.
Among the notable attendees, was his Black Panther co-stars Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan.
His wife, Taylor Simone Ledward was also spotted at the memorial.
The memorial was held outside in Malibu and photos of the site show Boseman’s portraits surrounded by flowers.
The actor’s death came as a shock to everyone as the public was not aware of his battle with colon cancer.
The actor had been silently fighting the disease for 4 years.
His family in a statement revealed that when he was diagnosed the cancer was at stage 3.
Said the statement:
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side
Michael B Jordan who expressed his sadness at his co star’s death said he wished they had more time together
I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything. I wish we had more time,
