In an Instagram post shared with Gelder, Daniels wrote: "I dropped everything to take care of him, but neither of us knew it would happen so fast. He was the kindest, most generous-spirited and loving person alive. For over 30 years we were partners in this life. Even if we weren't together, we talked to each other every day. He was a great actor and everyone who worked with him was touched by his heart and his light. I don't know what I would do without him. He dealt with his terrible illness with great courage, without self-pity. Without stopping."
