Goldie Hawn is mourning the recent death of her best friend.

“My best friend has passed,” the Snatched star announced on Sunday, captioning a vintage black and white photo of herself and the unnamed friend on Instagram.

“Please treasure each other,” she added. “Best friends get us through. Blessings to all this Sunday.”

Hawn followed up the announcement by posting a photo of her granddaughter, Rio Hudson, 4, hugging her own best friend. “Says it all!” she captioned.

The actress spoke about the importance of friendship during a recent sit down with PEOPLE. Asked who makes her laugh these days, Hawn said, “You have your girlfriends you really laugh with and there aren’t that many.”

Fortunately, she’s also getting plenty of laughs out of being a grandma. Hawn was on hand earlier this summer when Rio, her son Oliver’s daughter, graduated from preschool.

She spoke to PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle about her blended family, which includes kids Oliver, 40, Kate, 38, Boston, 37, and Wyatt, 30, along with five grandchildren, saying that she has learned the secrets to a long-lasting relationship.

“Love, gratitude, compassion, because sometimes every man or every woman will drive their partner crazy. Family. Fun. Laughs. Sex,” Hawn said. “If you don’t nurture that, and remember, you’re done.”
