Gone but certainly not forgotten.

One year after Luke Perry passed away at 52 after suffering a stroke, famous friends and fans alike are honoring the talented actor with heartfelt posts on social media.

On Wednesday morning, Ian Ziering shared a throwback photo with his Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star as well as a special message to his longtime friend.

"Hard to believe it's been a year since losing Luke. Though time heals wounds, the pain of loss lasts forever," he shared online. "Miss you so much pal. #RIPLuke."

Fellow co-star Vincent Young also took to Instagram on Wednesday to pay tribute to his longtime co-worker.

"Here's a drink to ya Luke, I'm not a big throw back person. I'm all about the present and the future and I am grateful for the work I've been able to do the last couple years, but today a drink in your honor and getting a chance to work with you and know you back in the day respect," he shared on Instagram. "Also Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the best film I've seen all year, was special to see Luke in this film."

"Probably the most important episode of Riverdale we'll do this year, if not ever," Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted at the time. "A tribute to our fallen friend. Thankful for this opportunity to honor Luke and Fred."

More recently, Marisol Nichols honored her co-star and friend with a message on social media. "One year ago. Missing this incredible being, it goes without saying we lost him too soon. Took this shot off the screen from our photo shoot for S2," she wrote. "He loved playing Fred Andrews, a genuinely good, honorable, caring dad and a stand up guy. And because that was who Luke was he imbued his character with all of himself and I loved him for it."

And although Luke was ultimately laid to rest in a private Tennessee burial in March 2019, many cast members still feel him around them.

Just last month, Riverdale star Lili Reinhart took to Twitter and recalled a dream she had about her late co-star.

"I had a dream last night that I saw Luke...and I hugged him so hard and cried into his shoulder, telling him how much we all miss him," the actress wrote on the social network. "Looking back on it this morning, I think his spirit was visiting me in my sleep, letting me know he's smiling brightly on the other side."

Lili added on Twitter today, "Can't believe we lost Luke one year ago. It genuinely still feels very surreal. We miss him so much. Hard to say anything else that expresses the magnitude of his not being here."
