After the death of Cameron Boyce, his loved ones came forward to remember him- including his parents, his fans and other celebrities. Now his little sister Maya is saying good thoughts about her brother in a heartbreaking yet lovely post on Instagram.

On Wednesday, Maya took to her social media page to post a series of beautiful photos of her brother. She then wrote how much she cherished Cameron who died last Saturday at the age of 20 from a seizure.

“Yes, he died. Yes, I’m sad,” Maya wrote. “Cameron was my best friend. He is someone I will always idolize. His smile could light up a room, unlike anyone else’s: He was perfect. He always said that if you have a voice, you have the privilege of using that voice for change, and he did not take that idea lightly. He understood his responsibility as someone so many kids would look up to.”

With such an early fate, Maya said that her brother accomplished more than some people do in their lifetimes.

“He was actively charitable. He traveled the world. He made creativity and art his life’s mission, and he encouraged others to do the same,” she wrote.

The 17-year-old finished her post with something so mournful and so compassionate that her followers are likely to remember it forever.

“Yes, he died. Yes, I’m sad. I’m also happy. And grateful. I was with him hours before he died. It was normal and fun. We said, ‘I love you.’ He was happy. I spent 17 years knowing what it was like to be loved by Cameron Boyce. That is the most beautiful gift I have ever received.”

Our hearts are with you, Maya.
