 ‘Rest In Peace and I’m so glad you got to share all your adventures with me and were able to accomplish so much,’ he began.

‘I’m so proud of you. I will always love you, but I think it’s time for you to go on an adventure of your own. You’ll always be with me. Love you more than you will ever know and I’m glad you can be at peace now. 

‘You always were the toughest and funniest and smartest person I’ve known. I’m glad you shared you’re [sic] love with me. I’ll never forget it or lose it.’

Willie had adopted Nathen in 2010, as he did not want to wait to get married in order to have a family. 

The pair had first met in 2008 at an adoption fair in Los Angeles when Nathen was seven-years-old.

Willie had spoken about their very close bond in conversation with PEOPLE and confessed it was ‘hard’ being an empty nester, after Nathen left for college. 

‘We’re pretty close. It’s hard. It’s harder for me to let go. He’s living his life, he’s at college…But we’re there for each other, and I have to not want to make every minute of his life perfect. It’s time for him to make his life,’ he said. 

In their tributes, Parker, Kristen Davis, and Cynthia Nixon sent their love to Nathen, as Davi called him the actor’s ‘joy and pride’ and said that he had ‘strength and wisdom beyond his years,’ in excerpt. 

And Nixon tweeted: ‘Nathen, I hope you know how much he loved you and how proud he was to be your dad.’

Parker called the death ‘unbearable’ and said she would miss ‘everything about [him]’ and that she would transcribe the last phone calls they shared and ‘re-read every text.’
