Luke Perry's Daughter Says She's Missing 'Him A Little Extra Today' In Sweet Tribute
Sophie Perry has again penned an emotional tribute to her late father, Luke Perry, following his death from a massive stroke on February 27.
Posting a cute snap of herself and the late Riverdale star smiling alongside their pet pooch, Sophie captioned the photograph, "Miss him a little extra today,” along with two yellow heart emojis.
The 18-year-old has been open with followers about her grieving process following her dad's death, as well as taking aim at trolls who chastised her for posting photos to her 'gram that were unrelated to the actor's sudden demise.
A few days after speaking out about the loss of her father, Sophie told her followers that she refused to "sit in [her] room and cry" since her dad "wouldn't want [her] to."
“Since my dad died I have received a lot of attention online. And most of it has been positive but of course, some people just can’t be nice,” Sophie wrote a week after his death.
“I’m here to say that I did not ask for this attention, I did not ask to be thrown into some virtual spotlight, and while I don’t mean to offend anybody, I’m also not going to cater to any one else’s needs and beliefs,” she shared. “I’m 18. I swear like a sailor and sometimes I dress like a hooker. And I support causes and you may not. And most importantly. I am going to laugh and smile and live my normal life.”
Continuing, she added, “YES I am hurt and sad and crying and beside myself with what happened to my dad. It’s the worst thing to ever happen in my life. And I am torn the fuck up over it. But I’m not going to sit in my room and cry day in and day out until the internet has deemed it appropriate for me to do otherwise. And if you knew my dad you would know he wouldnt [sic] want me to. So you shouldn’t either.”
“So to those of you shaming me for my language and my wardrobe and most disgustingly, my grieving process, do us both the favour and just unfollow. It’s a waste of both of your time,” she wrote, concluding the post.
Following Luke’s death, Sophie's 21-year-old brother Jack also penned a tribute to the star.
“He was a lot of things to a lot of people. To me, he was always Dad,” Jack wrote. “He loved supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be.”
"I’ve learned so much from you, and my heart is broken thinking about everything you won’t be here for.”
He continued, “I’ll miss you every day that I walk this earth. I’ll do whatever I can to carry on your legacy and make you proud. I love you Dad.”
Luke shared both Sophie and Jack with ex Rachel “Minnie” Sharp.
