‘Thank you dearest Chris. I’m not ready yet. Xxx,’ penned Parker, who is also mourning the very recent loss of her longtime business partner George D. Malkemus lll.

Willie’s death was confirmed on Tuesday by his 20-year-old son Nathen, while TMZ reported that the actor was battling cancer prior to his untimely death.

Garson famously played the role of Stanford ‘Stanny’ Blatch, who was the male BFF to Sarah’s Carrie Bradshaw on the series that spanned from 1998 to 2004. He starred in 27 of the show’s 98 episodes. 

He also appeared in the first Sex And The City feature film in 2008, as well as its sequel, titled Sex And The City 2, in 2010. 

Just two months prior to his death, Willie was spotted filming a scene with Sarah on the set of the forthcoming SATC reboot, titled And Just Like That…, in New York City.

The reboot, which is expected to premiere on HBO Max later this year, is supposed to catch fans up on the lives of the series’ characters and how they’ve evolved since the events of Sex And The City 2. 

On July 24, Willie and Sarah were also joined on set by costar Mario Cantone, who plays event planner Anthony Marentino in the beloved HBO series and subsequent revival.

During the shoot, Garson could be seen placing a kiss on Parker’s face as they performed their lines out front of the Lyceum Theater.

He was last photographed filming for the reboot on August 3.

Speaking to Us Weekly in June, Willie expressed his excitement over figuratively and literally ‘stepping into the shoes [of Stanford Blatch] again’ after so many years.

‘It was great. I was just telling my friends … that I probably was wearing about $200,000 worth of clothing yesterday,’ speaking of his first day on set. ‘And it was right away. It’s like, “Oh, this is us, here we are.”‘ 

Since the news of his passing broke, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, and former SATC player Kim Cattrall have issued social media statements in honor of Garson, many of which included their favorite snapshots of and with the late star.

Cynthia called Willie ‘a source of light,’ while Cattrall deemed his death ‘a terribly sad loss to the SATC family.’

Davis remarked on Garson’s devotion to fatherhood after having adopted his now 20-year-old son Nathen in 2009, writing: ‘I really want to pay tribute to his fearless commitment to single fatherhood.

‘We spoke about being single parents through adoption often. And nothing gave him more joy and pride than his son Nathen.’ 

Sarah was the only one out of the show’s four ladies who had yet to comment publicly, leaving many fans worried about the actress and how she was coping with the loss of yet another dear friend.

Just last Thursday, Parker learned that her SJP shoe line co-founder George D. Malkemus lll had died at the age of 65 after a battle with cancer.

Giving herself time to process, the actress/designer published a post in honor of her longtime friend, noting that she could not ‘summon the words for a fitting tribute’ and that he ‘deserves prose I don’t yet have.’

She continued: ‘I have to gather my thoughts. Today I can only say I’m utterly heartbroken. RIP dearest partner, elegant gentleman George.

‘Til we meet again, I will spend the rest of my days asking “what would GM3 do?” I’m going to miss you so “F’in” much. Forever,’ concluded the star.

Sarah famously co-founded her seven-year-old accessories brand SJP Collection with the former CEO of Manolo Blahnik, who’s survived by his husband Tony Yurgaitis.
