Wright, 26, narrated the moving piece of poetry amid a montage of images related to nature as well as shots of them together.
'I didn’t know this is what I was waking up to, my brother, an angel on earth, departed,' Wright, who played King T’Challa's sister Shuri in the hit 2018 film, said. 'A soul so beautiful, when you walked into a room, there was calm. You always moved with grace and ease. Every time I saw you, the world would be a better place.'

The Georgetown, Guyana-born actress talked about her mourning since getting the unexpected news, as she reached out to him during his health battle, which was not made public.
'I wish I got to say goodbye,' Wright said. 'I messaged you a couple times, but I thought you were just busy. I didn’t know you were dealing with so much. But against all the odds, you remained focused on fulfilling your purpose with the time handed to you.
'And I’ll never forget the day that I met you, before I got on the plane to L.A. for my first meeting with you. God told me that you were my brother and that I am to love you as such, and I always did, and I always will.'
She continued: 'It is also written that all things are made new, there is light in the darkness.
