“We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our friend Chadwick Boseman.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time,” read a tribute by the hospital. Along with the post, they also shared pictures of the actor interacting with the kids.

Earlier, in 2018, the actor had shared pictures with the children along with a tweet that read, “Had a birthday celebration with a beautiful little princess, Mady. She let me throw the confetti twice. I think I had as much fun as she did.”

Since his death, tributes for the actor have poured in on social media. Celebrities to politicians, including Chris Evans, Joe Biden and Barack Obama, paid homage to the 43-year-old actor.

Several fans dug up his photos from the 2018 hospital visit and shared them with emotional messages. “He was fighting just like these kids, and he made time for them. Made time to make them smile,” read one of the many tweets doing rounds on social media.
