Over the weekend, 20-year-old actor and “Descendants” star Cameron Boyce died tragically from a seizure. In tribute to the late actor, Adam Sandler and many other celebrities have reached out via social media to share their reactions to his death and some kind words of Boyce.

In the heartfelt Instagram post (featured below), Sandler, who shared the silver screen with Boyce in his comedy films “Grown Ups” and “Grown Ups 2,” shared kind thoughts of Boyce and offered his deepest condolences. In the post, Adam wrote:

Too young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, and most decent kid around. Loved that kid. Cared so much about his family. Cared so much about the world. Thank you, Cameron, for all you gave to us. So much more was on the way. All our hearts are broken. Thinking of your amazing family and sending our deepest condolences.‬

Zendaya, who just took the screen in “Spider-Man: Far From Home” and many other countless Disney Channel projects, some of which she worked side-by-side with Boyce, also took to social media to express her condolences.

On his official Twitter account, Robert Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company, also shared some words of the late actor, speaking for not only himself but the major media company as a whole.

Peyton List, who worked with Boyce on the Disney Channel series “Jessie” took to her Instagram to write a deeply emotional tribute to her late friend, who she refers to as “brother” in the post. The post, spanning over two images of written text, is full of only the kindest remarks of the late actor.

The Disney Channel star Debby Ryan, who worked with Boyce on the cable channel’s 2011-2015 sitcom “Jessie,” took to her Instagram story Sunday night to share a touching video of Boyce accepting an award. In the video, Boyce gave a heartfelt speech on the importance of social media as he accepted the Pioneering Spirit award at the 2018 Thirst Gala, which raised awareness about the global water crisis.

“It’s crazy, we can tweet whenever we want and we can use social media and Instagram and make the world a better place,” Boyce says in the clip posted to Ryan’s Instagram Story. “Instead of a worse one, which so many people use it for.”

A spokesperson told ABC News on behalf of his family that Boyce “passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.”
