Sophie, 18, shared her own tribute via Instagram on Tuesday, March 5. “A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast,” she wrote. “I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family, And in the past 24 hours I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support. I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I.”

She concluded: “I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye. So bear with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly.”

The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum was married to Sharp from 1993 to 2003. He was secretly engaged to Bauer before his death.

Jack, who goes by the name “Jungle Boy,” pulled out of an upcoming wrestling match in Los Angeles amid the tragedy.

A source revealed in the new issue of Us that Luke’s family made the decision to take him off life support after he “never recovered” from the aftermath of the stroke.
