Luke Perry was very highly regarded among the people he worked with, so it’s not surprising that as the word of his death got out, the Internet was flooded with tributes.  Here are some highlights from his former co-stars . . .

From his co-stars on Beverly Hills 90210:

Jennie Garth:  “My heart is broken.  He meant so much to so many.  Such a very special person.  I share my deep sadness with his family . . . such a terrible loss.”

Shannen Doherty:  “I am in shock.  Heartbroken.  Devastated by the loss of my friend.  I have so many memories with Luke that make me smile and that are forever imprinted on my heart and mind.”

Gabrielle Carteris:  “I’m absolutely heartbroken.  Luke was a tremendous force in the lives of so many.  He was a very sensitive soul who was kind, generous and he fought for the underdog . . . he has left his mark . . . never to be forgotten.”

Tori Spelling:  “I’m in utter shock and heartbroken.  I’m saddened for his kids, whom he adored beyond words . . . Luke was one of the kindest and most humble human beings I’ve ever known.  I’m grateful for the years of friendship we had.”
