Matt took to his Instagram with his tribute, which featured a picture of the two.

“Willie. I don’t understand. And it’s not fair,” he first wrote. “This past year, you taught me so much about courage and resilience and love. I still haven’t wrapped my head around a world without you in it- where I can’t call you when I need to laugh, or be inspired. The last thing you did when we said goodbye was pull down your mask (I hate covid), smile, and wink at me.”

Matt went on, “I know that it wasn’t reflective of the pain you were going through, but it was indicative of everything you were and are to me: some one who lifted me up, who made me better, and who always, always made me smile. This also reminded me how strong our White Collar family is. We were all there for Willie, and for each other.”

“I love you forever Willie Garson. You live on in our hearts and minds always: and your White Collar family is always here for Nathen. Save a place for me, because you know I want to be at your table up there.”

Cynthia Nixon, who starred with Willie in Sex and the City, also shared her own tribute.

“So deeply, deeply sad we have lost @Willie.Garson. We all loved him and adored working with him,” she wrote. “He was endlessly funny on-screen and and in real life. He was a source of light, friendship and show business lore. He was a consummate professional — always. My heart goes out to his son, @Nathen_Garson.”

Cynthia added, “Nathen, I hope you know how much he loved you and how proud he was to be your dad.”

“I couldn’t have had a more brilliant TV partner,” Mario shared on Twitter. “I’m devastated and just overwhelmed with Sadness. Taken away from all of us way soon. You were a gift from the gods. Rest my sweet friend. I love you.”
