Garson, who was 57 years old, died after a secret struggle with pancreatic carcinoma.

On Wednesday, the late actor’s son, Nathen, penned his own message to his father, sharing a few snaps of their lives together.

“Wow. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since this beautiful bald man that I can proudly call my dad passed away. Besides his head, I think I miss his laugh and smile the most,” he wrote via Instagram. “Because I knew that whenever he was laughing, he wasn’t the only one laughing. He had a gift of being able to talk to literally anyone he came into contact with and make them either laugh or awkwardly smile from a joke he had probably just told them.”

Nathen, whom Garson adopted in 2010, confessed: “He wasn’t just my father, he was my best friend and a mentor before I even knew what that was. When I was younger, he inspired and encouraged me to be better than what I ever imagined. Without him, I would not be where he is today. I wouldn’t be who I am if not for him.”

The 21-year-old reminded his followers that “life comes and goes way too quick,” before asking them to “cherish everyone and say hi to a stranger every once in a while because you never know when you could meet your next best friend.” He added, “That’s how my dad met me. Thank you for all the lessons dad ❤️.”

Bomer was quick to respond to the touching post, replying, “Nathen this is beautiful. I miss him so much. He made me laugh and felt loved in a way that no other person could. He is proud of you, young man. Sending you lots of ❤️ today.”

Garson’s Sex and the CityCostar Kristin Davis also sent Nathen a message of support on the College of Wooster student’s hard day, writing, “Oh Nathen sending you all of our love! We will all be there together today, and I feel him right here with me. Think back to all the jokes he made last time we did these things together. Thank you for this ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.”

Davis — who played Charlotte York alongside Garson’s Stanford Blatch on the HBO series and its 2021 spinoff It’s as Simple As That — reposted Nathen’s message on her own social media account on Wednesday as well.

“We will miss @Willie.Garson. Especially today,” the 57-year-old actress added via her Instagram Story. “Love you @Nathen_Garson.”
