Chadwick Boseman’s wife, family and friends gather together to say their final goodbye to the actor and to console each other following his shocking demise.

Boseman succumbed to colon cancer on Aug. 18 after battling the disease for four years. A week after he passed away, the people close to him gathered together for a private memorial in Malibu, Calif.

Boseman’s wife Taylor Simone Leward was joined by his celebrity pals Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke. In the snaps shared by The Sun, they were wearing black t-shirts and masks.

Boseman's memorial was overlooking the ocean and included music from a hang drum. There was also a beautiful table with the "Black Panther" star's photo and flowers.

Prior to the memorial, Boseman was remembered on his hometown as a hero. The city paid tribute to him in a public memorial by showing "Black Panther" at an outdoor amphitheater where people maintained social distancing. Most people who attended wore masks while the kids were dressed up in Black Panther costumes. There were also some artwork of Boseman displayed onstage during the tribute.

Many were not aware of Boseman’s illness. In fact, his “Da 5 Bloods” co-star Clarke Peters regretted his first impression of Boseman.

Peters and Boseman met on the set of “Da 5 Bloods” when they filmed in Thailand. The “John Wick” star admitted that he didn’t have a good impression of Boseman on set because he felt that the people around him were fawning over him. He thought that the success of “Black Panther” went to his head.

There was a Chinese practitioner massaging Boseman's back, another lady massaging his feet and his girlfriend holding his hand when he saw the actor. But after learning about his disease, Peters became emotional.

"I have to say with a little bit of regret that I probably wasn’t the most altruistic in that environment, but hindsight teaches us a lot of things," he said.

"I regret even having those thoughts because they were really looking after him,” he added while holding back his tears.

Boseman decided to keep his cancer battle a secret partly because his mom taught him not to have people fuss over him, according to his longtime agent Michael Greene of Greene & Associates Talent Agency. Also, he felt that people could trip out about it and he is a very private person.
