“I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day,” she wrote alongside a clip from the hit NBC comedy.
“When you work with someone as closely as I did with Matthew, there are thousands of moments I wish I could share,” Cox added. “For now here’s one of my favorites.”
Chandler is shown in the scene lying in bed when Ross Geller (David Schwimmer) enters. He tells Chandler with excitement that he is getting married that day. After he exits the room, Monica appears from under the sheets and asks Chandler if her brother knew she was there.
“To give a little backstory, Chandler and Monica were supposed to have a one night fling in London," Cox explained in her caption.
"But because of the audience’s reaction, it became the beginning of their love story. In this scene, before we started rolling, he whispered a funny line for me to say. He often did things like that. He was funny and he was kind. 🤍🕊️” she remembered.
Fans leave tributes for Matthew Perry
Several fans offered their tributes on Cox's post. One of them wrote, "We will miss you Chanandler Bong! thanks for the laughs! Love u forever!"
Another said, "This moment was legendary and I am so happy that Monica and Chandler became a couple. R.I.P Matthew."
Someone else penned, "It’s funny one of the reasons I’m going to drug and alcohol courses to become a counselor was because I read his book. I read it three times twice I read it once I heard audio and I started listening to it again recently."
Cox and Perry remained in each other's lives and frequently got back together after ending their run as one of the most adored TV couples when the popular '90s sitcom ended in 2004. They even shared some of these reunions with their fans, as reported by People.

Cox shared a selfie of herself and Perry on Instagram in 2019, referencing Chandler's well-known sarcastic tone in the caption. “Guess who I had lunch with today....I KNOW!! Could I BE any happier? #realfriends.”
"Lucky lucky. #beautifulpeople," Lisa Kudrow, who portrayed Phoebe Buffay in the NBC sitcom, commented.
Perry was bedridden for three months following a gastrointestinal perforation, which led to their reunion. Perry "was very sick when he was hospitalized; his condition was very serious," a source told People at the time.
