Hollywood actor Harrison Ford gave a heartfelt statement on his Star Wars co-star Peter Mayhew’s death on Thursday.

Peter Mayhew was a kind and gentle man, possessed of great dignity and noble character,” Ford said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 7-foot-3 actor played Chewbacca, the loyal sidekick to Han Solo, who was played by Ford. The famous Wookiee, who starred in five Star Wars films, including the original trilogy, died at his Texas home on Tuesday at the age of 74.

Ford said the duo’s unique bond extended beyond the silver screen.

“We were partners in film and friends in life for over 30 years and I loved him. He invested his soul in the character and brought great pleasure to the Star Wars audience,” Ford said about his co-star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Han Solo actor credited Mayhew’s character for the popularity of the legendary science fiction film series.

“Chewbacca was an important part of the success of the films we made together. He knew how important the fans of the franchise were to its continued success and he was devoted to them. I and millions of others will never forget Peter and what he gave us all,” Ford said.

Time has the knack off making you want some things to last forever…

Ironic, as it is the Gatekeeper of Eternity.

Love, I’m sure of it, does in fact last forever…

…and memories… And the light within each and all living creatures.

The Term ‘Time Is A Thief’, has always struck me oddly… As Time is the greatest Blessing one could ever have, or has ever been given.

To Form A More Perfect Union

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

It’s Been Something Beautiful

It’s Been Something Beautiful

It Has to have been…

Tranquil-Ized

These Dreams scream so loudly now…

Tearing me within

I Try so hard to see the truth…

It’s all around me…

Like everything is

I used to think I was wise…

But no

I’m just a kid…

It must be something I recognize

How many times must I begin…

Down the rabbit hole I go again

The stars, they look so dim

Spared

All is well…

In a distant world

The less that’s known…

The more concern

What’s your plan…

My earthling man

To span the globe…

To hardly know

She’s the Light…

This distant night

Full of hope…

And joy

The Mirth…

Your planet

Earth

Your Moon…

Your Stars

Your long goodbyes…

And wondering mind

You are free…

To dance

To Sing…

A Harbored Ring

In the end…

The Sky opens wide

And swallows you up…

No one knows why

So Learn while you can…

Breathe in

Expand
