If you’ve ever lost a pet, you know how devastating it can be to say goodbye to a soul that has essentially become your family. It’s hard to explain the love you have and the love you feel from animals but it’s a special bond and it hurts to lose that. I know my childhood dog passed when I was 18-years-old and at 29, 11 years still look for him when I come home.

Actress Taraji P. Henson is experiencing this now in the loss of her 16-year-old Yorkshire Terrier, Uncle Willie.

She shared this post about his passing on her Instagram page.

Shortly after that, her fans started compiling some very sweet tribute posts for Uncle Willie. The actress has reposted a few on her page.

Thank you 💔😓 #Repost @therealsamanthadiane ・・・ Ppl might think losing your pet is something so simple. But it isn't they become apart of your family. They comfort you in the worst time they love you no matter what and they become more like family. You tell them everything and they keep your inner most secrets because they are so loyal. (And of course because they can't talk😂) But we love them like our own children they become apart of who we are. They make us smile when we are down and than when there gone we miss them the most. @tarajiphenson I'm soo sorry and I hope you fine peace in this time. I love this picture soo much he was happy and he was loved. And now he can Rest In Peace. 🐶😢😢😊 #RIPUncleWillie
