“I’m posting this pic because of the pure joy and fun, I am clearly having in your presence,” Doherty wrote. “From the moment we met, you embraced me, supported me and stood fiercely by my side. Never a moment of insecurity or feeling threatened between us. Instead, you only rooted for me and lifted me up.”

Doherty went on to express how proud she was of her friend and praise her for her “smile, confidence, humility, intelligence and sense of ease.”
