Sarah Jessica Parker breaks silence after Willie Garson's death: 'It's been unbearable'

"I'm not ready yet," Sarah Jessica Parker commented two days ago under Chris Noth's Instagram post mourning Willie Garson, who died Tuesday at 57 of pancreatic cancer.

SJP will probably never truly be ready, but she broke her public silence and addressed Garson's death Friday afternoon in this emotional Instagram post.

The caption reads as follows:

"It's been unbearable. "Sometimes silence is a statement. Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30 + year friendship. A real friendship that allowed for secrets, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood and all the heartaches and joy that accompany, triumphs, disappointments, fear, rage and years spent on sets (most especially Carrie's apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ. "Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together. I will re-read every text from your final days and put to pen our last calls. Your absence a crater that I will fill with blessing of these memories and all the ones that are still in recesses yet to surface. "My love and deepest sympathies and condolences to you dear Nathen. You were and are the light of Willie's life and his greatest achievement was being your Papa. These were his last words to me. 'Great bangles all around.' Yes. Godspeed Willie Garson. RIP. X, SJ"

Garson played Stanford Blatch on Sex and the City, as well as the two feature-length SATC films, and he had been filming for HBO Max's revival limited series And Just Like That... before his sudden passing. Stanford was Carrie Bradshaw's (Parker) best male friend.

Garson also held a prominent role in the Matt Bomer-led USA Network series White Collar and earned 170 acting credits throughout his career.
