“Michael was young and healthy, and the doctors have no explanation for what happened,” he added.

The artist described Heslin as “a brilliant, selfless, talented man, and a real-life guardian angel,” and praised the late actor for helping him overcome cancer.

“Michael, meeting you was the best thing that ever happened to me. You are my world. You are my everything. When I felt you take your last breath, my heart shattered into a million pieces. If I had the ability to trade places with you, I would in a heartbeat. But I will live each day as it comes, as you always told me, and I will live each day in your honor.”
